My nephew and family live there, just down the street from lovely Prospect park. Lots of good restaurants, coffee and ice cream shops.

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...

We stayed 5 nights in Park Slope and 5 in Upper West side. A perfect combination! We really felt like we were living in a real neighbourhood with real locals! It was interesting, lively and felt totally safe even at 1am. Less busy than Manhattan but very quick and easy to get there on the subway.

I grew up in this neighborhood in the 60’s, 70’s and 80's. Then it was truly diverse. It had locally owned shops, different cultures, different political views and different classes living next to one another. Park Slope has been taken over by yuppies who dress the same, think the same, shop in high end shops you can find in any... More

Very nice area! Great restaurants and shops. You could also visit Prospect Park and enjoy a nice day out with the family or watch the dogs running around!
