Historic Districts

Community District 2 is home to eight of the 24 historic districts in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Heights Historic District, designated in 1965, was the first to be created in New York City. The most recent landmark area to be designated within the community district is DUMBO, which was approved in 2007. Research conducted for the Fiscal Year 2012 Statement of Community District Needs estimated that approximately 40 percent of the residents here live in a historic district.
