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

My wife and I have been living in Park Slope in Brooklyn since 1987, and we absolutely love it here. We think of it as one of the great neighborhoods, not only in NYC, but in the entire country. For one thing, there is the great Prospect Park (for which the neighborhood is named). For another, the streets are beautiful,... More

Great place to live, walk around and explore what city has to offer - architecture, stores, restaurants, bars and night life just like in Manhattan...

Warm and friendly, historic and scenic, quirky and diverse. This is the best neighborhood in Brooklyn. Explore the shops and restaurants on 7th Avenue and 5th Avenue. But don't miss the opportunity to walk along and walk in Prospect Park--a smaller, cleaner version of Manhattan's Central Park. Same designer--with zoo, rink, concert space, bike paths, horseback riding. Very family-oriented neighborhood... More

Had a family vacation in brooklyn, and spent the weekend exploring the park slope area. Loved the restaurants, coffee shops, botanical garden, and prospect park. Would go again in a heartbeat.
