Five favorite sights in Crown Heights South
Eye on Real Estate: Start with Doctor's Row and you can't go wrong
Once upon a time, Brooklyn’s best surgeons congregated on President Street.
It became a hot spot for medical professionals to live a century ago and earned the nickname Doctor’s Row, which endures to this day.
The blocks of President Street between New York and Kingston avenues in Crown Heights South are lined with graciously designed mansions surrounded by lawns.
Just a few blocks away, large-scale development is planned at the Spice Factory, whose address is 960 Franklin Ave. But on today’s wintry stroll, we’re sticking to Doctor’s Row and the immediately surrounding streets, where the housing stock is lovely and largely low-rise, and a sense of serenity pervades.
