Neighborhood Description

Prospect Heights is relatively small in the realm of Brooklyn neighborhoods, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in character.

Nestled between the lush greenery of Prospect Park to the south, the gem of Fort Greene to the north, the suburban comfort of Park Slope to the west, and the urban flavor of Crown Heights to the east, this culturally rich community has become a diverse middle-class outpost right in the heart of Brooklyn.

In Prospect Heights you’ll find it all: tree-lined streets and classic 1890s Brownstones alongside newly built luxury condos, old properties in disrepair, and thriving commercial areas. The Prospect Heights Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 due to its dense collection of classic and historical architecture, and is the fifth largest historic district in New York City. From the 1910s through the 1950s the area boasted a wide mix of ethnically diverse communities, including but not limited to Italian, Irish, Jewish, German, and Greek. To this day the West Indian Day Parade, the largest annual parade in all of New York City, celebrates its finish in Prospect Heights.

Between Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and Mount Prospect Park, the neighborhood has a bounty of green space, in addition to housing to several of Brooklyn’s biggest attractions. The Brooklyn Public Library, the recently renovated Brooklyn Museum, and the Barclays Center, home to the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets basketball team, all call Prospect Heights home. A bustling commercial zone thrives between Vanderbilt Avenue and Washington Avenue, boasting new bars, restaurants, and specialty stores every day. The Way Station, New York’s first steampunk bar, is a popular Prospect Heights staple that hosts book readings, comedy shows, live bands, and even a monthly burlesque show that was recently rated “One of the World’s Ten Best Burlesque Shows” by the Travel Channel. And even among the treasure trove of cafes and restaurants in the area (Bearded Lady, Washington Commons, The Vanderbilt, Weather Up, and Milk Bar are all notable), Tom’s Restaurant, a 70-year-old diner that is as famous for its food as for its hospitality, remains a standout.

The area is a stone’s throw away from several major thoroughfares including Flatbush Avenue, Atlantic Avenue, and Vanderbilt Avenue, and offers excellent train access to Manhattan.

The closest subways are the 2,3,4,5,B,Q to Atlantic Ave., the 2,3 to Bergen St., the B, Q to Seventh Ave., the 2, 3 to Grand Army Plaza, the 2,3 to Eastern Pkwy.-Brooklyn Museum, the S to Botanic Garden, the 2,3,4,5 to Franklin Ave., and the S to Park Pl.
