Tucked away just beyond DUMBO is this charming 4-5 block historic neighborhood. With its un-paved cobblestoned streets and houses dating back to the 1820's, Vinegar Hill is perhaps Brooklyn's most unique, charming and unknown neighborhood! Once known as Irish Town, Vinegar Hill is comprised of private homes where owners and renters alike have bonded to create a strong sense of community. Although services are not found directly in the neighborhood – everything is easily accessed in nearby Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO.
