Runs from Fourth Avenue to Prospect Park West, Prospect Avenue to Flatbush Avenue.
One of Brooklyn’s largest neighborhoods, Park Slope offers an amazing array of meticulously renovated brownstone
and limestone townhouses — both single-family and with rental units — as well as full-service loft and apartment coop
and condominium buildings. Residents and house-hunters delight in Park Slope’s elegant layouts, 12-foot ceilings,
wood-burning fireplaces, pocket doors and other turn-of-the-century details. Newer zoning changes on Fourth Avenue
are adding condos to Park Slope, with new buildings including The Argyle, Novo Park Slope at Fourth Avenue and
Fourth Street, and the Crest at Fourth Avenue and Second Street.
Many of Park Slope’s brownstones and condos are “up slope” – near the Park on Prospect Park West or Eighth Avenue.
Seventh Avenue is a Park Slope commercial strip, with banks, a variety of charming restaurants and hardware stores.
Move west – or “down slope” – and enjoy the eclectic bars and restaurants of Fifth Avenue and the artful programming
of the Brooklyn Lyceum. You can also try the South Slope as Park Slope shades towards Windsor Terrace — all are
areas of wooded beauty lined with brownstones. Moreover, all are convenient to the F, R, or Q trains. Also important is
the fact that the neighborhood slopes to Prospect Park, designed by the same landscapers as Central Park. The swath
of green, which contains a sixty-acre lake, is indeed gorgeous and gigantic. For other entertainment, The Brooklyn
Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, are all just minutes away.
