Prospect Park South Apartments
Brooklyn

Prospect Park South is a neighborhood in South Brooklyn and just like the name implies – it is just south of the green and spacious Prospect Park.

The area is technically bordered by some of Brooklyn’s main thoroughfares: Ocean Avenue to the east, Beverly Road to the south and the big Coney Island Avenue to the west.

Prospect Park South is spread out and residential. Multi-level, detached homes with front yards and porches stand side by side on long stretches of suburban-feeling streets. The Colonial and Tudor Revival architecture of the neighborhood makes the area feel worlds away from Manhattan, which may be just the right amount of distance from big city chaos. The short walk to Prospect Park, and plenty of smaller community gardens in between, makes the neighborhood ideal for growing families, people with pets or those who need to see trees on a daily basis. You’ll find that most houses here will even have backyards – a New York luxury.

More about Prospect Park South

The neighborhood doesn’t quite have the community vibe of the smaller, trendier spots where young people are all packed together. Instead, there is a feeling of space and privacy and less concern about noisy or dirty co-tenants. This is the land for homeowners, or renters just looking to spread out.

The area's lack of trendy restaurants and nightlife is made up for by kitchens with actual counter-space and small, family-owned delis and pizza joints that have been around for years. More interesting cuisine can be found in close-by Flatbush or Bay Ridge. More dining and socializing options can be found in Park Slope just a few subway stops away and for the weekends, there is easy access to Coney Island along Coney Island Avenue. A growing increase in Park Slope market prices means that families are moving south and bringing the bars and restaurants with them. While this spread is already evident in Windsor Terrace and the areas southeast of the park, the trend for better value and bigger houses is set to keep moving south.

Prospect Park South is accessible on the B and Q trains, although the area is better for drivers, who will find no trouble acquiring a parking space. Those who don’t work in the city or don’t mind the forty minute commute will find it worth their time to check out this neighborhood.
