781 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 781 Washington Ave

Recently, the neighborhood has become increasingly popular resulting in the building of condominiums and luxury apartments along with the opening of new businesses such as trendy restaurants, lounges and bars. As an area that is mostly landmark designated, it naturally has an unique and classic beauty filled including tree lined blocks and brownstones built during the 1s. Serviced by the 2, 3, 4, 5 and Shuttle trains to the south and the A and C trains to the north, commuting to and from Manhattan is made quick and easy. Prospect Heights is a small prime area in Brooklyn, coveted by many due to its many neighborhood highlights. Michael Grant (Oct 2013)
