Residents have been calling it "South Slope" for years, though it received its official designation, "South Park Slope" in 2005 when it was rezoned by the New York City Department of City Planning.
Rents are considerably lower than Park Slope and the neighborhood is slightly less developed, though the long time residents enjoy it that way. South Slope apartments consist primarily of pre-war row houses, although an era of new construction has begun.
The stand by local bars include Commonwealth, Draft Barn, Buttermilk, all of which have a dive bar feel. The major subways that reach into this neighborhood are the F, R or Q trains.
As a neighborhood, it would still fall under the up-and-coming label but is close to a central subways and Prospect Park while still remaining relatively inexepensive.Find Park Slope apartments
