    Our Community

    The Brooklyn Transition Center (BTC) is a learning community guided by effort, drive, determination and data. BTC is located in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Fort Greene is named after an American Revolutionary War era fort which was under the supervision of General Nathanael Greene of Rhode Island. The neighborhood is close to the Atlantic Terminal train station and has access to most major subway lines.
