As more people are drawn to the low rent of Ditmas Park apartments, and the neighborhood's convenient train access, great new restaurants and markets, Ditmas Park in Brooklyn is rapidly growing.
The area is on the B/Q line, express trains with a good track record. One bedroom Ditmas Park apartments for rent go for around $1,650. One beds are around $1,650, while two bedrooms apartments are typically $2,200. As more people discover the neighborhood, however, more construction is starting and rents are going up. Ditmas Park is a great place to live, but you better get there soon.
Over the past few years, Cortelyou has developed into the hub of the neighborhood, with new coffee shops, restaurants and bars opening up all the time. Noteworthy examples include the middle-eastern Mimi's Hummus, highly acclaimed pan Asian Filipino fare at Purple Yam, and the comfort food of Picket Fence. Bars like Sycamore and Shenanigan's are packed on weekends with a mix of old and young Brooklyners of all shapes and colors. The large homes around Marlborough Road and the surrounding streets are unique and beautiful, and no two look the same. It makes for a pleasant setting to spend a leisurely afternoon walking around the neighborhood.
Ditmas Park is loosely bordered by Coney Island Ave. and Ocean Ave. to the east/west, Beverly Rd. to the north and Newkirk Ave. to the south.
