Fort Greene Favorites

Brooklyn-Fort Greene

Just a few personal favorites in Fort Greene. Romans is a neighborhood go-to for a great Italian meal in a wonderful vibe. Before or after a bite checkout Greenlight Bookstore. It's one of the best independent bookshops in the city and just happens to around the corner from Roman's.
