Still a fond memory

Lived and worked here in the late 90's early 2000's. It truly is the brooklyn oasis, very nice, peaceful out of the hustle and bustle of the city.

Spent the afternoon walking around this neighborhood. There are many shops, restaurants and bars along 5th Ave. We checked out a number of vintage shops then cut up and down a few of the surrounding streets to admire the architecture. Close to Barclay Center and subway.

Park slope, Brooklyn is a great area of Brooklyn to visit. It is one of the oldest areas and is very close to Manhattan, just a short train ride away. It has many beautiful blocks of houses to walk up and down to site see. It has the beautiful Prospect Park there and so many wonder restaurants from 5th Ave... More

Walking around the Park Slope neighborhood you notice a wonderful mix of young familes with children, older couples holding hands walking down the street and people walking their dogs. Almost a Rockwell painting of an established neighborhood where the streets are clean and fronts of the homes are well kept. Definitely a loved location by its inhabitants. One could still... More

This was my first venture into Park Slope, and I was quite impressed. This I'd a genuine family neighborhood in the middle of massive New York City. The architecture here is fantastic. Street after tree-lined street is lined with classic brownstones. The streets and lanes run between the avenues, which are lined with local shops and restaurants. It oozes charm.... More

Park Slope in the morning is loads of nannies pushing buggies with bleary-eyed kiddos. You got your actual moms and "work at home today" dads strolling around with baby frontpacks, a second kiddo in tow and of course a cutsie doggie on a lead. It is blocks of rowhouses that look similar but pleasant and residential. Nothing extraordinary but everyone... More

Lovely $2million townhouses to browse while strolling to the park....so many baby carriages, nannies and kids to dodge on the sidewalks. Plenty of small interesting neighborhood eateries, not necessarily "destination restaurants" but interesting enough, from dumplings to barbeque.

We've stayed in Park slope for a week and I absolutely loved it. Manhattan is way too busy for me. Brooklyn is much more relaxed without being dull. We ate every night at a different restaurant on 5th avenue and never regretted it. (ok, maybe once... :-D ).
