Cobble Hill: full of "yoga-glow moms pushing expensive baby strollers" and "wine bars, stylish boutiques and gift shops." That's part of the round-up of the nabe, courtesy of AMNY, which finds similarities between Cobble Hill and its Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill neighbors. So what's different about it? "Cobble Hill is smaller and more intimate, especially east of Court Street where the noise and fuss gives way to peaceful little streets, gardens with wrought-iron fences and pre-Civil War era townhouses," they write. They report a happy mix: old-school Italians residents; the Middle Easterners along Atlantic; an infusion of young hipster types, all peacefully coexisting in this pocket of the world. “Sure, there are hipsters, but it's not Williamsburg,” said one resident. “And too many strollers but it's not Park Slope, either.”
