8 years ago, it would have been Williamsburg. 4 years ago it would have been Bushwick. Last year, maybe Greenpoint. In 2016 however, one Brooklyn neighborhood shines above all else according a real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield.
In their new Cool Streets report, the firm analyzed neighborhood statistics and created a list of the 100 “coolest” neighborhoods in the nation. So what makes a neighborhood “cool” anyway?
“Most of the neighborhoods featured in this report are up-and-coming trade areas driven by dramatic demographic shifts and strong Millennial preference for urban living,” the report says. “The renaissance occurring on these Cool Streets has been driven by an explosion of new restaurant and retail concepts that connect with the seemingly elusive Millennial consumer like no other.”
Using this definition, the report names Sunset Park as the coolest neighborhood in the country.
