Downtown Brooklyn ranked top neighborhood to watch in 2019

Posted: Updated:
DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN -

A new list finds six Brooklyn neighborhoods that are the best in the city for living and conducting business, with Downtown Brooklyn taking the number one spot.

StreetEasy's New York City Neighborhoods to Watch in 2019 lists areas that they predict will have the most interest from renters, buyers and sellers.

The real estate network puts together its findings based on areas that have seen the highest annual growth.

Some of those factors include average rent and sale prices, new construction units  and searches on the site. 

The need to relocate because of previous plans to shut down the L train is one reason Downtown Brooklyn’s ranks are so high.

Other neighborhoods on the list are East Flatbush, Cobble Hill, Crown Heights, Bed-Stuy and Prospect Heights.
