Description
Crown Heights is bound by Atlantic Avenue to the north, Ralph Avenue to the east, Clarkson Avenue to the south and Washington Avenue to the west. This neighborhood is also where the worldwide headquarters of the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic Jewish religious movement is located.

This diverse neighborhood has inexpensive brownstones, occupied by working-class families, on tree-lined streets. Crown Heights also has many restored row houses, along with newly developed condominiums and townhomes that have modern amenities and features.

Crown Heights is also home to both the Brooklyn Children's Museum and the Jewish Children's Museum. Other places of interest include the Weeksville Heritage Center, Brower Park, and the botanic garden, Prospect Park, which boasts 585 acres of green lawns, tennis courts, and lakes.

The Crown Heights community gets together to celebrate two annual events - one is the West Indian Labor Day parade, held on Eastern Parkway and the other is Unity Day, which brings together about 10,000 persons. However, the most popular would be the West Carnival and Parade that has around three million attendees every year and held on the first Monday in September.

For those who like live music, Friends and Lovers, is slated to open on Franklin Avenue in late 2013. They will also feature electronica and local bands geared to its hipster population.

Crown Heights offers a wide range of culinary experiences, many of which can be found on Eastern Parkway. There are a number of West Indian and Jewish bakeries, as well as cafes, kosher delis and gourmet food retailers. Dishes range from goat curry, jerk chicken, brick-oven pizza, bagels, and Israeli falafel. Highly recommended are the Crow Hill Bistro as well as Punch Line, a Jamaican-owned spot that sells fresh juices and smoothies.

The IRT and several bus lines serve Crown Heights. Some of the public transportation goes into Manhattan and runs all day long.
