662 WASHINGTON AVE in Prospect Heights

Prospect Heights

Quiet Good transportation Great food

Prospect Heights is relatively small in the realm of Brooklyn neighborhoods, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in character.

Nestled between the lush greenery of Prospect Park to the south, the gem of Fort Greene to the north, the suburban comfort of Park Slope to the west, and the urban flavor of Crown Heights to the east, this culturally rich community has become a diverse middle-class outpost right in the heart of Brooklyn.

Descriptions of 662 Washington Ave

Renovations of older brownstones and new construction have made this neighborhood bordering Prospect Park very desirable for newcomers, as well as Manhattanites looking for more bang for their buck and a short commute to the city. Of course, the main attraction in the neighborhood is Prospect Park itself, a 585-acre park which hosts free outdoor concerts in the summertime and various sports and fitness activities, including seven baseball fields. Prospect Park is just 25 minutes to 14th Street in Manhattan and serviced by the 1, 2, and 4 (late night) trains from Grand Army Plaza, plus the 1, 2, 4 (late night) from Eastern Parkway and Bergen. Prospect Heights, known for its diversity and tree-lined streets, has gone through many changes in the past few years. Neighborhood. Nina Morrow (Feb 2011)
