NY: Brooklyn’s Gayest Neighborhood

Gay New York Real EstateSuck it, Park Slope! According to new Census data, the highest percentage of same-sex couples can be found in the Columbia Street Waterfront District–not a real neighborhood, but a real census tract, from Atlantic Avenue to Degraw Street, from Columbia Street to the BQE–where 11 percent of 549 households identify as same-sex, the Brooklyn Paper reports.

That number trounces those found in stereotypically “hip” areas: the gayest part of Park Slope–from 9th Street to 13th Street, between Fourth and Sixth avenues–reported only five percent of its cohabitators as gay; the gayest part of Williamsburg, from Berry to Kent and N. 7th to Grand, reported only four percent.

Second place in the gay-couples contest goes to a part of Prospect Heights, where nine percent of the cohabitators living between Atlantic Avenue and Bergen Street, and Vanderbilt and Grand avenues, reported as same sex.
