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 ).

Park Slope is a charming neighborhood filled with lovely brownstones, churches, cafes, shops, parks, and restaurants. It is peaceful and filled with life at the same time. It is the kind of neighborhood where you can walk outside and feel a sense of community as you find neighbors and visitors walking along the streets.

I lived here for 3 years. The neighborhood has lovely brownstone homes and beautiful old churches. Also lots of non-chain restaurants and shops. While it is great to walk around and look at, it is not an affordable place to live for most people. We moved because we found the populations to be too homogeneous, and the atmosphere a bit...

Lovely homes, delicious restaurants & wonderful boutiques. Take a walk on any street & you will see people enjoying a book while sitting on the stoop, or potting new plants, or go on the avenue and enjoy a lovely breakfast or brunch, lunch, snack or a great dinner.

The historic architecture is beautiful, in one of the city's most vibrant neighborhoods. The 7th Avenue commercial street has interesting shops and restaurants offering diverse cuisines and price levels. The Northernmost area, the first section of Park Slope to be given historic district designation, is the more interesting to see and closest to the Brooklyn Museum and Botanic Garden. The... More

I am consulting in NY and home is Phoenix, AZ. I rented the brownstone entire 2nd floor on Bergen Street near Flatbush Ave. The feel and vibe here was better per my Kids and Wife than Manhattan (where I currently renting). Everything is close by supermarkets, malls, BAM, Barclay Center, Pizza, Bagel ( See my Bergen Bagels review), coffee places... More

One can Google to get tips on the best eateries and drinking holes in this neighborhood. So I'll just tell you about the joy in walking around this 'old time' urban locale and inhaling all its beautiful tree lined streets, Prospect Park, the original Brownstones, the cozy and boutiques shops and so on.
