To all who know and are familiar with the area this information is redundant.
To all the Newbie's here are some highlights:
Tucked Between Past and Future in Brooklyn
Just a few blocks from some of Brooklyn's most heavily trafficked destinations, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect Park.
WHAT TO DO
There are, of course, the big-name cultural spots. But the neighborhood also has less-well-known options, including the half-acre Underhill Playground, an appealing meeting place for children and their parents.
New restaurants and cuisines have popped up in recent years, including Cheryl's Global Soul, on Underhill Avenue. But the lines for brunch on Saturday are still longest at Tom's Restaurant.
The area has subway stops leading in practically every direction. At its northwest corner the Atlantic Avenue station offers access to the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, R and Q subway lines, as well as the Atlantic Terminal of the Long Island Rail Road. Getting to Midtown Manhattan from there takes roughly half an hour.
The A and C lines are slightly north of the neighborhood, and the S line is a couple of blocks east. Some stops for the 2, 3, 4, B and Q trains are found along the western and southern borders. Several buses serve the area as well.
