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.

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.

I liked Park Slope and the convenience to the city aka Manhattan without all the crowds. There are some cute little shops, restaurants and delis. I would definitely stay in that area again!

I spent a couple of hours strolling through Park Slope and enjoyed seeing the many stately brownstones and myriad of churches in this precinct. Many different architectural styles in the commercial buildings too. If you only have time to visit one Brooklyn brownstone precinct however I would recommend Brooklyn Heights.

We used airnb to find an apartment that was on fifth avenue and loved the area. It felt like we were seeing a bit of the city that 'real' people lived in and all of the places to eat that we tried were fantastic. There was a park just over the road, and a great Italian next door (l'albero dei... More

It is the United Nations of neighborhoods -- you can find every kind of person here, eat almost any kind of food, hang out and any kind of bar, shop in eclectic and fun stores and visit Prospect Park, too.

Loved this area in Brooklyn! Very family oriented with lots of cute restaurants and healthy organic stores.. All the corner stores here are mainly Natural food shops with kombucha galore lol. - Called Park Slope because the area is on a slanted hill beginning from Prospect Park - another must see! - This area has the beautiful new yorker town...
