Which neighborhood should advance—Downtown Brooklyn or East New York? The CURBED Cup is CURBED’s annual awards program for best neighborhood. With 16 areas vying for the top neighborhood title, each week we will become closer to hearing the top choices! New York City is consistently and rapidly changing—and our projects are right in the heart of it all.
CURBED Cup Round 1: Downtown Brooklyn vs. East New York
Downtown Brooklyn: Cultural Center. High-rise Buildings. Amenity Rich.
East New York: Industrial Center. City block development. Low-rise Manufacturing Buildings.
Dattner Architects’ projects made the list for both locations! Hub is currently downtown Brooklyn’s tallest residential building and is known for having the best borough amenities to date. In East New York, the Atlantic Chestnut development is part of New York’s rezoning plan to promote affordable housing, encourage economic development, create pedestrian-friendly streets, and invest in community resources.
