If you have the energy, just walk up and down the streets to see some early residences. Well maintained for the most part. Peaceful area Safe Early Brooklyn History. See along with Brooklyn Heights with awesome views of the harbor and lower Manhattan..

Our Son and daughter in law were looking for an apartment in Brooklyn after he transferred to New York City with his firm. We spent several days helping to hunt for the perfect spot and met an interesting property manager named John. Something he said has stayed with us and we use it often. "It is what it is" This...

Park Slope is good. We stayed there for a week, ate at the local restaurants, shopped at the local shops and had no problems at all. The subway stations are convenient and the shopping is good. We often ate at the Bagel Pub, which was awesome. Prospect Park is close by, perfect for a game of frisbee. In all, it's... More

Been in and out of here since 1974. I tried to by a Brownstone that was on the market for less than 10 Grand. Everyone thought I was crazy and now the property is worth a million. Now it is too high in price to walk through.

Visiting our son is a treat because we get to visit Park Slope. With access to the park, plus lots of interesting small shops and restaurants, this is a wonderful, less-crowded taste of NY.

Take the time to walk thru Park Slope. Great shopping (5th Ave) great restaurants (5th Ave and 7th Ave). Strolls great along 8th Ave. Close to many transportation options. Beautiful brownstones. Friendly neighborhood, bordering on Prospect Park.

Ok, look, I live in Park Slope, have lived here for 20 years. It's the dead center of the cultural universe. Jimmy Kimmel did a show at BAM in October and filmed a piece ("Do the white thing") on my block. Park Slope for me is a place of steep contrasts. It reaches from the Gowanus Canal (oh, ew, it...

Now famous as the family home in Showtime's The Affair, this is a really nice place with broad leafy streets

I like old neighborhoods that have been kept up and used. This is an example of what can be accomplished when the locals want their neighborhood to shine.
