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...

If you are visiting New York, I would only recommend visiting Park Slope if you are also going to Prospect Park. Otherwise, I don't think it would really be worth the trip (unless you are staying here). You'll find quaint brownstones and streets in Manhattan. I live in a nearby neighborhood, not I don't go to Park Slope unless it's... More

We made our way up to 7th st and walked down here to 5th ave. Our stroll down 7th awarded us with some lovely photos of the brownstones ,the detailing on the stoops ,the stone balustrades and the creativity of the tiny gardens at the front - we must have passed (and perused) at least 5 stoop sales , and...

There are so many places in my hometown that I am in love with. There are so many places that a NYC tourist can visit and not spend a fortune. Park Slope is one of these places. Some of the locals complain that it has gotten too high end...they call it gentrified. This is true. When I was growing up... More

I've been here a lot when I lived in Brooklyn more recently in September 2013 during a moving trip. Park Slope is the most preferred neighborhood in Brooklyn for several reasons- *It's houses are Beautiful Brownstone Buildings which provide some of the most visually appealing Architecture in all of Brooklyn. *It is located on several small streets with numerous bars...
