Named for Charles Carroll, a Revolutionary War hero and senator from Maryland and the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, the neighborhood is centered on tree-lined Carroll Park. Around and near the park is the Carroll Gardens Historic District, comprised of 19th-century brownstones with elaborate gardens out front.
Another fun way to get here is via the IKEA Express Shuttle. Running seven days a week from Pier 11 at South Street Seaport, this $5 boat ride across the East River passes Grosvenor Island and the Statue of Liberty before depositing you at the IKEA Superstore in Red Hook.
