Today, the inventory of apartments is wide ranging, from Victorian Homes in planned, suburb-like communities like Prospect Park South to brownstones in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens to traditional high-rise apartment buildings and row houses in more urban parts of the neighborhood. There are a good number no fee Flatbush apartments. This is a result of higher vacancy rates in this neighborhood than other parts of New York City. In addition, nearly fifteen percent of the apartments are pet-friendly.
Though Ditmars Park was once distinguished by wealthy homeowners, the area saw an influx of young people and artists throughout the 1980s and 1990s who were attracted to the area’s larger spaces for cheaper rent. A great place to experience the younger up-and-coming vibe of Ditmars Park is Cortelyou Road, where several delis, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants are located. Cortelyou also contains several venues that attract musicians, both local and well known. The neighborhood has been ranked among the best neighborhoods in NYC for food. Noteworthy restaurants include The Farm on Adderley, The Purple Yam, Picket Fence, and Sycamore.
It is one of three Flatbush neighborhoods to be officially designated as a historic district. Ditmars Park is located on land (formerly owned by the Ditmars family) that remained rural until the early twentieth century. The neighborhood was constructed in 1902 entirely for the purpose of gentrification. Sewers, sidewalks, and tree-lined streets were conceived and developed before the large freestanding Victorian homes that have come to characterize the neighborhood were built.
Subway stops in or near Ditmars Park include Church Avenue (B and Q trains), Beverley Road (Q train), Cortelyou Road (Q Train), and Newkirk Plaza (Band Q trains). Express buses that run through the area include the BM1, BM2, BM3, and BM4. Local Bus options are the B35, B16, B68, and B103.
