Just saw this interesting article about Mill Basin. A person interviewed there said that when Mill Basin is discovered by Manhattan castaways, Mill Basin will be more popular than Park Slope. Don't know if this is good or bad news. But I guess I just wanted to get a better idea of what the neighborhood is like and if the article really has its merits.

Brooklyn neighborhood beats Park Ave.

mill basin has a lot of expensive homes and its a nice neighborhood, just the public transportation sucks and personally i prefer a more racially diverse neighborhood.

I live pretty close to Mill Basin.

It is like the suburbs with smaller lots. All single family homes on curved streets. Also, a lot of those funny looking urban McMansions are going up.

One notable real estate item there is that it is home to a new gated community (billed as Brooklyn's first), called "Mill Harbor". It looks like one of those condo developments you find in Florida.

I wouldn't call it "The Next Park Slope", nor do I think Manhattanites would find it appealing because of it's suburban-like qualities. Park Slope is appealing to those who live there because of its urban amenities and unique brownstone housing stock. Mill Basin is a very nice, safe, quiet, prosperous neighborhood, but comparing it to Park Slope is really apples and oranges.

Brooklyn's first gated community is actually Sea Gate. You can't get in there unless you're a resident, or a resident is accompanying you.
