Park Slope is huge and vibrant. Everyone is there--all walks of life, all ages! I've walked there for hours and not retraced my steps. It's wonderful to see everyone out and about and doing whatever they enjoy from riding bikes to pushing strollers to roller skating to playing soccer. In my perfect world, I would live around the corner from... More

You can do a lot worse than while away an afternoon strolling Park Slope - 5th and 7th avenues are full of interesting shops and cafes, beautiful brownstones in the surrounding streets. So close to Prospect Park too.

This neighborhood close to the Barclay center is filled with interesting shops, bars, and restaurants. It's where many of the young professionals have moved from manhattan.

So, if you have to live in NYC, Park Slope has the neighborhoods and commercial areas that make it a bit quieter and more convenient that most areas. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Easy access to to the city, if you need that.

As an architect, this is a lesson in what makes a successful piece of urban design. Dense housing, adjacent to walkable retail, with a park on an edge, and public transit nearby. Go walk it, and learn how tomorrows communities will (or should) be based on places like this. No real need for cars. We walked about 12km through this... More
