When you say 'attraction' you think museum, amusement parks, etc.... I have nothing negative to say about Flatbush Avenue as I was there to 'get a deal' when you shop. Very busy during the day, not sure about clubs or dining in the evening. I have only ever gone there for little shopping deals but on my next visit I... More

There is nothing remarkable about a long street that runs across Brooklyn. It looks dirty and dark at night but more animated during day time. We stayed at the Hampton Inn Brooklyn that is located right on it.

I didn't realize this is reviewable till I saw it. It's a long avenue with many shops. Theres really not much more to say.

This Avenue is one of the most Important Streets in Brooklyn, largely because it goes from Manhattan Bridge to the Marine Parkway Bridge bypassing Downtown Brooklyn, the Prospect Park Area, Greater Flatbush, and Southeast Brooklyn in the process. It flows relatively well even during major events which makes it a better street to cross in Brooklyn. One can see more... More

I was visiting Barclays Center for a NETS game. I came here by LIRR and met up with my friends before the game to see where we could grab a bite to eat. We had a North Flatbush Avenue map and a listing of all restaurants by category. It was helpful. We walked just a few short blocks and came... More

We walked down Flatbush Avenue to the bus, near Cortelyou Road, south of Prospect Park. This is Brooklyn as everyone thinks of it. Crowded, noisy, dirty, and a wide variety of ethnic shops whose makeup changes as you proceed down the Avenue. A great place to watch people going about their lives the outer boroughs.

I grew up in this area as well. This long stretch of Flatbush Ave has been declining since the 60's. And now it ia a comlete mess from north to all the way yto the south. It has become little Haiti with peole who have no respeact for property or any redeeming social value's. Dollar vans will cut you off... More

There is no reason to visit Flatbush Av - it is simply the street you take to get someplace else. Don't know why it is even here to rate.

Flatbush Ave. is supposed to be some sort of highlight? Junior's is fine and dandy for cheesecake, but there's no place to park over there.

Great up in Flatbush. Great stores, wide variety of places to eat. True Brooklyn "flare" about the area.
