Warm and friendly, historic and scenic, quirky and diverse. This is the best neighborhood in Brooklyn. Explore the shops and restaurants on 7th Avenue and 5th Avenue. But don't miss the opportunity to walk along and walk in Prospect Park--a smaller, cleaner version of Manhattan's Central Park. Same designer--with zoo, rink, concert space, bike paths, horseback riding. Very family-oriented neighborhood... More

Park Slope has been rated one of the best places to live in New York. It has so many unique shops and fabulous restaurants. The architecture alone is worth the trip! This is an area famous for their Brownstones and Limestones!

Definitely a nice, safe, leafy, upscale neighborhood in which to live in Brooklyn. A particular favorite of the baby stroller set. Notable for its many blocks of intact 100+ year old Victorian brownstones. But what all the fuss is about is hard to fathom. The prices for these brownstones are insane, as are rental rates for apartments. If you walk... More

We looked at several apartments in the area. All of the area seems quite safe, and 7th Avenue is beautiful, with wonderful restaurants, groceries, and other interests, and Prospect Park a couple of blocks away.
