Description of Neighborhood

We live in a beautiful part of Brooklyn, one block from to Prospect Park. We have two major subway lines (Q train and B Train) three minutes away, that take you directly to lower Manhattan and Union Square in around 15-20mins. We use the park daily and subway into Manhattan many times a week for work, museums, galleries, shopping and to take in performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and many more. Our local neighborhood commercial street (2 blocks walk from the house- 5 mins) offers a unique selection of excellent restaurants, cafe’s, pubs and wine bars, supermarkets, bakeries, wine stores, dry cleaners, and some other retail stores to cover the basic daily/weekly requirements. Our neighborhood, Prospect Park South is a destination in itself due to its historic significance. NYC locals frequent the neighborhood on historic tours from Spring through Fall. Prospect Park South is an enclave of two hundred and six homes built at the turn of the century on the southern edge of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York. It is just to the north of the area of Ditmas Park described in the New York Times video below. It is the oldest of the neighborhoods and the first to be historic landmarked. It is a six block by two block canvas of Victorian style homes that range from Queen Anne to Shingle Style to Italianate to Colonial Revivals to Exotics. Stepping out of the subway, first-time visitors often wonder what world they have entered; they have discovered the very Heart of Victorian Brooklyn.
