Park Slope is one of Brooklyn’s best-known and most desired neighborhoods, and for good reason.  This is brownstone Brooklyn at its best, with magnificent row houses on every block and easy access to Prospect Park’s grassy lawns and well-kept playgrounds.  Trees are everywhere in this neighborhood, and biking is a popular mode of transportation. 

Townhouses, co-ops and condos are all plentiful, and residents are careful to maintain and care for their homes, each of which is its own architectural masterpiece.  Old churches stand on several street corners and add to the grandeur of the neighborhood, their steeples interrupting the mostly low-rise skyline.  The Montauk Club building in the northern part of Park Slope is a rare example of Venetian Gothic architecture dating from 1891.

Park Slope Brooklyn Real Estate stretches north to south from Flatbush Avenue to 15th Street, and east to west from Prospect Park West to Fourth Avenue.  Seventh Avenue is the commercial center of the neighborhood and provides toy stores, bookstores, and clothing stores in addition to restaurants and bars.  For more of the last two, residents head to Fifth Avenue, which is well-respected for its nightlife. 

There is a strong sense of community here, as evidenced by the Park Slope Food Co-op, which provides its members with healthy, organic groceries in exchange for a small monthly volunteering commitment.  There is also much local support for independent businesses, which survive here despite the presence of corporate competitors.  There is a farmer’s market every Saturday with fresh fish, vegetables and pastries galore, as well as flower stands and fruit stalls.

The 2/3 subway line serves Grand Army Plaza in the northern part of the Slope, and the B/Q is also accessible nearby.  Farther south the F/G line is available, and the R train stops on Fourth Avenue, Park Slope’s western boundary.  Manhattan is a short commute away, as is Brooklyn Heights.

Living in Brooklyn: Park Slope Brooklyn Real Estate

It's the details that are astounding. Architectural facades, wrought-iron décor, brickwork and stone lintels…Each is its own masterpiece, and yet inescapably part of a greater holistic artistry.

Taking a walk around the neighborhood is an entirely original experience, each and every time.

Residential streets are lined with trees and well-kept brownstones. Neat storefronts and sidewalk café-style seating areas alternate along commercial thoroughfares.

Could Park Slope be more picturesque?

Variety won't be a problem. From British-style eateries like Chip Shop to chic (and kosher!) French restaurants like Chagall Bistro, Park Slope has plenty of dining options to offer.

Feel like eating Greek? Try Okeanos or Faros Restaurant, both on Seventh Avenue.

Park Slope is certainly not short on bars or pubs…check out Beer Table or the Fourth Avenue Pub if you're a beer enthusiast, or go to The Dram Shop and try out their impressive selection of Scotches, whiskeys and bourbons.

Alternatively, Union Hall is a widely accepted oldie-but-goodie.

Plaza Street and Prospect Park West are two Park Slope streets that were established to rival Manhattan's Fifth Avenue and came to be known as the "Gold Coast" of Brooklyn.

In a word: Marvelous

Prospect Park offers so much more than can be done in a day. Go sledding down its hills and ice skate at the new Lefrak Center in winter.

Visit the Prospect Park Zoo year-round. Go pedal-boating on the lake and feed the swans in summer, or take a whirl on the Prospect Park Carousel. Make memories.

Rediscover nature. Encounter rabbits in the meadow, spot turtles sunning in the lake, and let Canadian geese take bread from your hand.

In Park Slope, you don't have to go far to find nature; just let nature find you.

Live in the fantasy world you always dreamed of. There's no place more romantic than Park Slope, and magic is waiting around every corner.
