Good experience of the local neighbourhood. Leads to a number of train stops too. Good shops for getting your daily groceries and souvenirs.

Looking for a night out with that special person but not sure of where to go? Dont worry just head over to Smith Street in the Brooklyn Heights area of Brooklyn. Choose from French, Italian, American, Southern, Asian or even Middle Eastern. You don't need to head over the bridge to Manhattan when you have a global variety all along... More

Smith Street is eclectic mix of hip bars, restaurants and boutiques, along with remnants of the pre-gentrification, working class neighborhoods. I would say that Smith Street is still undergoing a rebirth from an industrial center to the newest residential frontier.

It's a great spot to find whatever you are looking for! Bars, restaurants, small shops and pizza and ice cream!

Pretty typical, trendy, slightly expensive row of restaurants and bars in Brooklyn. There is definitely a little bit of everything here.

The street itself is not particularly attractive, it is a busy main street with some very attractive tree lined streets going off it with great little cafes. Smith Street though does have many cafes and shopping options. My favorite cheese and sandwich shop Stinky Brooklyn is at 215 Smith St. Unfortunately you also have corporates like Lulu Lemon and others... More

Smith St. is the main artery of Carroll Gardens and is home to many restaurants, bars and a variety of stores. While this street was once rather decrepit it has been transformed to a major shopping and dining destination. As a local I'm not thrilled that some corporate chains have laid claim to some of the spaces but there is... More
