5. Little West Indies in Crown Heights, Brooklyn

Though the micro neighborhood seems to get smaller and smaller, a strong West Indian and Caribbean presence is still present around Nostrand Avenue between Eastern Parkway and Fulton Street. The most famous food joint may be Gloria’s, seen on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, but there are plenty of other spots to check out as well, including The Food Sermon (which is south of Eastern Parkway), Peppa Jerk Chicken, and more. The West Indian Parade is a festive.
