South Brooklyn is a hybrid neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, encompassing areas of Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Gowanus, Park Slope, and Boerum Hill. Thus it forms the western half of the territory of Brooklyn Community Board 6.
It is named for its location, south of the original City of Brooklyn. It became the southern part of the City in the middle 19th century, and is northwest of the center of the modern borough. This somewhat historic name has been revived in recent years to foster a closer connection among the constituent communities. The area is not to be confused with the actual southern region of the modern borough of Brooklyn, usually called "southern Brooklyn" or "the southern tier", which spans the neighborhoods of Sheepshead Bay and Coney Island, for example.
