This is a big neighborhood in central Brooklyn with big frame houses. Multi-cultural, lots of immigrants. Residential with shopping streets. Not for tourists, but a good place to live.

This is a pleasant part of the Borough of Brooklyn. It’s definitely not a tourist destination. You can skip it.

I decided that I needed to walk through the historic districts of Ditmas Park and South Prospect Park, or Kensington. It was a beautiful sunny day. The old Victorian homes were gorgeous and well maintained. Many had book drops on their lawns. Sandwiched between Coney Island & Ocean Aves, there are plenty of commercial establishments and subway stops to explore this neighborhood and see something of NYC besides midtown Manhattan.

Do you like lovely late Victorian/Edwardian period homes with exquisite arts & crafts details? Visit this neighborhood. Best though, is to go as part of house tours (either organized by realtors or by neighborhood charities) because the details are best seen from the inside (There is no park, though). If you go, plan on stopping for food and drink on Cortelyou Road. I live nearby and go by here daily.

Visiting our son and his family, we could see why they like living in this neighbourhood. Within walking distance of their apartment are many interesting restaurants, parks, and a library. Maybe not a great tourist area, but a comfortable place for a young family to live.

The homes here are very large and stunning. This is a historic neighborhood with meticulously well kept homes. It has a very suburban feel. The homes in this neighborhood cost well over 1 million dollars.

The park is very good for walk about or to have family picnic, the surrounding trees create the environment that induces you to sit back and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Interesting single family homes as few would imagine in a city. The main thoroughfare has a few up and coming spots for dining.

Ditmas Park is nice place to visit; when you've run out of other choices. By all means, go spend time there is you have family or friends living in the area. It has its own feel and its own vibe: Like every other section of Brooklyn.
But if you only have a couple of days, you'll more likely be spending your time in The City. t's very residential, and has few attractions that, well... Attract.
