About Carroll Gardens
Originally considered to be part of South Brooklyn or, more specifically, Red Hook, the neighborhood started to have its own identity in the 1960s. The new name came from Charles Carroll, an Irish immigrant who was the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, and whose name was already attached to Carroll Street and Carroll Park. The name also reflects the large front gardens of brownstones in the Carroll Gardens Historic District and elsewhere in the neighborhood. Despite having an Irish surname, in recent times it has been known as an Italian American neighborhood.
Carroll Gardens is part of Brooklyn Community Board 6, and receives police services from the New York City Police Department’s 76th Precinct at 191 Union Street. The Fire Department of New York City’s firehouses are located at 299 Degraw Street (Engine Company 204) and 187 Union Street (Engine Company 216 and Ladder Company 108).
The area has sometimes been called “Little France” or “Little Paris” due to many French people who have taken up residence there.
