Descriptions of 1119 Foster Ave

Ditmas Park offers the gorgeously-preserved Victorian homes and tree-lined streets of a sedate residential neighborhood with an increasing number of hip amenities like fair-trade coffee and its first gourmet restaurant. That, and the convenience of the Q and B subways (a short ride to either Downtown Brooklyn or Coney Island) has led to an influx of hip young residents, but that hasn't affected the neighborhood's diversity. The area appeals to buyers seeking an up-and-coming neighborhood but trying to avoid the residential-boom fallout that results in sidewalks clogged with recent college grads, baby-strollers and bar patrons. The vast green spaces, lakes, tennis center and seemingly endless recreation opportunities of the 585-acre urban oasis that is Prospect Park are only a few blocks away. Called a "Best-Value Neighborhood" in an article by the New York Daily News, it remains, for the moment, relatively affordable. Elijah King Manna (Sep 2013)
