Prospect Park South


Runs from Parkside Avenue to the north, Coney Island Avenue to the west, Beverley Road to the
south and Ocean Avenue to the east.

Developed in the late 1800s as a “country in the city” and landmarked in 1979, Prospect Park South offers househunters
large, unique and architecturally significant properties. Whether you are looking for a Victorian, Queen Anne
or a Colonial, or be it French Revival, Arts and Crafts, or Spanish Mission you crave, you just might find it among
the 206 well-preserved single-family houses to be found in the exceptional Prospect Park South. That’s because
this charming and exclusive community is zoned for one-family houses; each lies on a lot that’s 50 by 100 feet, at
a minimum, and is set back 30 to 40 feet from the curb. Wraparound porches, seven or eight bedrooms, working
fireplaces, attics and parking are some of the rare-for-the-city amenities available in Prospect Park South houses.
The Prospect Park South neighborhood also has one rental building with 61 units, one 29-unit co-op and has recently
added some brand new condominiums.

Proximity to the 536-acre Prospect Park is one of Prospect Park South’s most wonderful amenities. The recently
renovated 40-acre Parade Grounds served as home field to some of the city’s brightest young players — from Sandy
Koufax and Joe Torre to Manny Ramirez — and now features a premiere baseball diamond with a state-of-the-art
scoreboard, covered dugouts, bleachers, and night lighting. Though Prospect Park South has no commercial district
within its boundaries, the nearby Cortelyou Road offers a wonderful mix of cafes, bookstores, a natural-food coop,
and restaurants including the family-friendly Zagat-rated Farm on Adderley. Prospect Park South is also just 35
minutes from Manhattan from your choice of three subway stops on the Q train.
