Formerly named Breuckelen by Dutch settlers, Vinegar Hill sits in northern Brooklyn. This nabe gets its name from being a battle site in the famous Irish Rebellion of 1798. In the 18th Century, Vinegar Hill was sold to developers who had plans to make the land somewhere New Yorkers could visit in the summer. Instead, there was a shipyard built, along with houses for workers of the shipyard, but was sold to the government to become what is now known as the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The vast majority of available Vinegar Hill real estate is in the form of condos and lofts. The neighborhood offers plenty of choices for would-be residents who wish to rent, lease, or purchase space outright. Detached townhouses are non-existent, but some multi-family properties can be found after a thorough search.
The neighborhood has a great selection of excellent cafes with live music, ice-cream shops, landmark Italian restaurants (Pete's Downtown), top-rated pizzerias (Grimaldi’s), and unbelievable sweet shops (Jacques Torres Chocolate is a “Willy Wonka” experience and is worth the trip from anywhere). A dazzling array of restaurants and bars is lined up along Atlantic Avenue, Court Street, and Cadman Plaza - Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream and Fuel Health Food, Middle Eastern gourmet at Tripoli and teriyaki specials at Samurai Sam's... and so much more. From a quick bite of an authentic Cuban sandwich at Habana Outpost to a long romantic dinner at one of the Italian bistros, you’ll find your gourmet’s paradise in DUMBO and Vinegar Hill.
