Local Allstate Agent: Meet David H. Cohen


I’m a true Brooklyn native – I was born and raised here, and have lived in the community my entire life alongside my wonderful wife and four children. I attended area schools, graduating from Edward R Murrow High School and New York University. My involvement in the area runs deep, serving on the board of trustees of my synagogue, Flatbush Park Jewish Center, for more than 10 years. I’m proud to call Brooklyn home for many reasons, among them the wonderful cultural diversity that characterizes New York City. And it's on display at my Allstate office, where Hebrew, Yiddish, Spanish and Arabic are spoken fluently.

Being an insurance agent allows me to run my own business and help customers – all with support of the wonderful company that is Allstate. I’ve been an Allstate agent since 1989, and am a little obsessive about running my agency efficiently, caring for the customers in a timely manner. Additionally, I have Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter ® and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ® designations, providing me with knowledge of various areas of financial concerns.

Brooklyn is a coastal city, and although we don't normally think of hurricanes, we need to see our insurance helps protect us, just in case. And although we live in a relatively safe community, big cities always carry the risk of theft. Drop by our office on Kings Highway near McDonald Avenue to learn more about managing these and other area insurance needs. We look forward to serving you.

Local events & news

Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant for Hope's Door

Hope's Door recently received a $27,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant on our behalf that supports the organization’s efforts to help women affected by domestic violence. One in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and financial abuse is the number one reason why women stay in or return to abusive relationships. Without access to money, financial resources or even transportation, victims remain trapped. We believe when we help others our communities are stronger and healthier, which is why we’re proud to support Hope's Door's work.

We Serve Borough Park

Borough Park is home to one of the largest Orthodox Jewish populations in the United States. Borough Park is family oriented and full of independently owned businesses. Its multi-culturalism is evident in the languages you hear spoken – English, Hebrew, Yiddish and Russian are common, while a number of Irish and Italians also live with its 2 square miles. Borough Park is known as the “Baby Boom Capital” of New York. (Creative Commons license/Christopher Macsurak)

We Serve Midwood

Ocean Parkway, a key north-south thoroughfare between Manhattan and Coney Island, runs straight through Midwood. For almost 50 years, it was home to an NBC studio were some episodes of “The Cosby Show” and “Saturday Night Live” were filmed. NBC sold it in 2000 and it is no longer used as a studio. Midwood is experiencing an influx of families drawn to the affordable housing. A mix of ethnic groups have poured into the neighborhood in the last 30 years. (Creative Commons license/Flinqr)

We Serve Mill Basin

Mill Basin, settled by the Dutch in the 1600s, is today home to some of Brooklyn’s most spectacular housing. Bordered by Flatbush Avenue and Avenue T, Mill Basin was developed beginning the middle of the 20th century. In recent years, waterfront construction on multi-million-dollar homes has become the norm. The neighborhood is a little over 4 square miles and has many new Ukrainian immigrants, joining the Italian-Americans once prominent here. (Public domain/Jim Henderson)
