Brooklyn commands 'Hottest Neighborhoods' list

Real estate website StreetEasy has named six Brooklyn neighborhoods as the city's hottest markets.



The list includes Fort Greene, Bath Beach, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Gowanus, Prospect Park and Boerum Hill.



Fort Greene landed at No. 2 on the list. Amenities like the nearby park and transportation were a big factor in its ranking.



StreetEasy estimates that more New Yorkers will become homeowners in the new year as the sales market slows.
