Seventh Avenue from President Street to St Johns Place is a nice place to visit with many shops and restaurants. From seventh ave to eight ave there are well kept older Brownstown residential buildings. Along Prospect Park West are well kept nice apartment buildings facing Prospect Park. I recommend packing a lunch and going to Grand Army Plaza and sittting on a bench watching the fountain. Also on Saturdays there are many food trucks parked right by Grand Army Plaza by the entrance of Prospect Park. Ajacent to the park is the Brooklyn Public Library and a short 10 min walk is the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.
