After so many trips to New York (>50), we wanted to do something else and Park Slope is absolutely the best neighbourhood to stay. It is relaxed, people are friendly and extremely helpful and. you can find everything you need and if you are desperate for big city live, it only takes 30 minutes and you are back in downtown Manhattan.

Known for its brownstones, and proximity to an array of culture, the Brooklyn Museum a walk to BAM, the central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, as well as the beauty of Prospect Park, and the lovely Brooklyn Botanic Garden, it is also rooted in history. Think of the street names: Lincoln, Berkeley, Union, and Grand Army Plaza with its triumphal arch commemorating victory in the Civil War. This neighborhood has many churches, which were part of the religious revival in the 1870's and 1880's. Restaurants are OK. More special are the blocks of lovely buildings and walkability of the neighborhood.

Park Slope is easily accessible from almost all of the trains from Manhattan; ACE, F, NRQ and 2/3. Take the trains into Barclays and walk south, or take the R to Union or 9th Street 4th Ave. The weekends in Park Slope are so much fun. Everyone is out and about, there are tons of places to grab food and a drink, and Prospect park is only a few avenues east. On Sunday there is a farmers market.

My youngest son and DIL purchased a brownstone in Park Slope last August. It is gentrifying, but still very diverse. I think it will be done correctly, although the "supertall" currently under construction on DeKalb Street will change the feel of things. Away from downtown with the other skyscrapers, most streets are comfortable and human-scale for strolling. And a plethora of restaurants. We visited before T-giving in 2020 during Covid-19 and again in April and this last time the place was hopping. WITH MASKS as it should be until this nightmare is behind us.

Park Slope is in Brooklyn. It has become gentrified and the housing stock has improved.. We had an Air B and B rental, it took up an entire floor of an older-style apartment building, which had been nicely redecorated. We felt safe walking aroud, there's lots of places to shop and eat. Park Slope has a sizeable population of liberal Jews. We took a walk to Prospect Park, so nice to have some open space in NYC. By the way, if you want to get to Manhattan, the Subway is quick and convenient.

This has become the mecca for young urban families. Lots of shops and restaurants dotted along 7th avenue, as well as 5th and 6th Ave's.

Nearby Prospect Park makes this a truly amazing neighborhood,

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 in this area, it was not the very best place to be. But, now.....unless you are a multi-milionnaire, you cannot afford a home in this area. Yes, you can rent, but its still expensive. The good news, is that if you are looking to visit, there are so many shops and cafes, and restaurants, you can get lost. If you like to walk, its not too far from Prospect Park or The Brooklyn Library, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens or the Brooklyn Museum. If I were a tourist I would take the train to Park Slope...walk around Park Slope and then to the Library and then to the Botanical Gardens and then to the museum....you will have a wonderful day and you will not spend a fortune.

This is the best neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. it is close to Prospect Park. There are 2 Subway stations here 7th Ave and 15th St Prospect Park. From here you can take F and G Subway Train. There are many good restaurants on 7th Avenue. This place is very good for walking. Windsor place is also a very nice neighborhood. I used to walk over Windsor place and take the subway at 15th Street Prospect Park to Queens.

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 other gentrified neighborhood and who send their kids to private schools (or move out to the ‘burbs when they start a family). I’d head further west to Bay Ridge if you want the feel of the real Brooklyn.

The old park slope must have been alot of family with strong family ties and a real neighborhood. As people started renting out their homes, as shop keepers started loosing their businesses, and as residential and commercial businesses tried to live together, the result is a strange and uncomfotable area. Plus, they have lots of rats at night.
