About the Neighborhood


If you ask Brooklynites for a quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood, you might be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t mention Park Slope. Bordered by Boerum Hill to the west, Prospect Heights to the north, Greenwood Cemetery to the south, and Prospect Park to the east, Park Slope is one of Brooklyn’s largest and most diverse neighborhoods.

The best feature of the neighborhood is its vicinity to Prospect Park. This 585-acre public park was designed by the same architects as Manhattan’s Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert B. Vaux, and has opportunities galore for area residents. For kids and families, there are amenities like the Prospect Park Zoo, the Prospect Park Carousel and horseback riding at Kensington Stables. Visitors can also stop at the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn museum, which are situated at the north end of the Park. In addition to these attractions, the park offers stunning open fields, running and biking paths, as well as abundant spots to stop and have a picnic or barbecue.

Take a stroll through one of the area’s bustling retail corridors of 5th, 6th and 7th Avenues, and you will see for yourself why New York Magazine once crowned Park Slope the number one neighborhood in all of New York. Park Slope offers attractive, tree-lined streets accented by stunning architecture, a superb public school system, public parks and a plethora of dining options. Additionally, as the development of the newly constructed Barclays Center and Atlantic Terminal continues, Park Slope has only benefited by way of new transportation options, restaurants, bars and retail stores coming to the area.
