We walked down Flatbush Avenue to the bus, near Cortelyou Road, south of Prospect Park. This is Brooklyn as everyone thinks of it.

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.
