Prospect Heights

Quiet Good transportation Great food

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.

Prospect Heights /Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Crown Heights
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.
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.
