This section of Brooklyn became a new hot spot to live a few years ago when Manhattan got even more expensive. Restaurants galore, beautiful side streets and great shopping on the Avenues.

In this neighborhood, you are never far from a coffee shop, bar, restaurant, florist, park or boutique. Great old brownstones too. I like to imagine how it was when one family lived in one of these beauties. Although I'm sure many are single family homes, many are now apartments. Great place to wander around in and not far from Manhattan... More

The neighborhood provides with everything you can possibly want. Amazing restaurants, beautiful brownstones, bars, coffee shops and most importantly...the amazing prospect park. Park Slope is also very family oriented and very kid friendly. It is also one of the safest neighborhoods in NY. Highly recommended.

Didn't realize how close Brooklyn is to Manhattan by subway, or how pretty it can be. Upside: architecture, park (especially audubon center/zoo/skating/stables), restaurants (Al Di La!), boutiques, BAM, and Brooklyn Museum. We also liked that it was closer to Coney Island and within walking distance of the new stadium. Downside: Lacks the go-go energy and buzz of Manhattan.

Great neighbourhood, up and coming area. Varied selection of bars and restaurants. You need to do a little research as some areas industrialised. Well worth the effort.

I had heard that Park Slope was the up and coming place to be and be seen and that it was the new Manhattan. Not yet, You really do need to do your research if you are planning to stay in Park Slope as parts of it are highly industrialised and commercial and not very nice to stay. 7th Avenue... More

Such a great neighbourhood. We stayed here for a few nights at the end of our trip and wish we'd had longer. Really great transport options, good shopping and some really great places to eat & drink.

Park Slope is one of the best known of Brooklyn's many beautiful residential neighborhoods. It is worth walking there with the architectural guidebook AIA GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY. On many streets are lovely old brownstones - row houses where each 3-4-storey building is owned by one family - from the late 19th century. The district is quite upscale, so... More
