“Classic New York Brownstone homes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Park slope in Brooklyn boarders Prospect Park and contains some of the loveliest brownstones in the city. These are classics. The neighborhood is quite lovely and there are many beautiful trees on the streets. There are interesting places to eat and shop on the Aves.

“MY STOMPING GROUNDS SINCE I WAS A TEENAGER (SINCE 1989)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

AND IT JUST KEEPS ON GETTING BETTER AND BETTER.. There is no better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than strolling 7th avenue or 5th avenue in park slope. You are lucky if you hit the scene for 7th avenue Father's Day fair or the 5th Avenue fair . But any day is a good day... from Dylans Closet on 5th Avenue to Cake Ambiance on Bergen and 5th to Taro Sushi on Flatbush and 6th Ave or all the boutiques on Seventh Avenue and last but not least Haagen Daaz on 7th or for the Shoe Queen DNA shoes on 7th and 4th Street or Je Taime Shoes on Flatbush Avenue and Dean Street..... one can't get enough.. Or can you ? Stop in at CheeBurger CheeBurger for a B.O.B. and a kiwi ole' fashioned fountain soda (several other flavors to choose from) Just Go and Stroll. (7th Avenue and 3rd Street)... OOH you want to be healthy when hungry ...... hit up Bare Burger at 170 7th Avenue.. organic and all natural restaurant YUM!!!

“Used to Live here, Always visit when I'm in NYC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

I used to live in Park Slope back in the 90's and all memories of living there were great. This neighborhood has the biggest and best park in brooklyn right next door (prospect park). On weekends they have a great farmers market. Prospect park is filled with beautiful old brownstone buildings, restaurants, coffee bars, cafe's, spa's and so much more. I highly recommend coming here and exploring all it has to offer.

“Watch out for the baby carriages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Park Slope has been satirized as the #1 spot in NYC to find hordes of yupster parents ferrying around their wee ones in pricey, high-tech carriages. Actually, it looks like a great neighborhood to raise a family for those who can afford to live there. For visitors, it is a seemingly endless succession of restaurants, bars, and upscale shopping spots. So if you're hungry, thirsty, in need of a sartorial update, or just want to people watch, you may enjoy your time there. We sure did, despite having to dodge carriages and dog leashes.

“Brownstone - BROOKLYN-Villa's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Very picture-esque to the Brownstones in Brooklyn... Iconic neighborhood with upscale shops, boutique hotels and some down to earth, good hearted people.
