Director of Sales for Halstead Brooklyn, Trish Martin & some of her talented agents show us one of the largest neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Park Slope is known for its brownstones, limestones, rolling acres of park land, & limitless cultural activities..
Best known for its collection of diverse housing which has remained unaltered for the past 100 years, this neighborhood is one of the most coveted in New York City. Brooklyn’s Park Slope was selected as one of 10 Great Neighborhoods in America, by the American Planning Association for its historical features, architectural beauty and unique mix of businesses and residents living together. Ranging from majestic brownstones, row houses, Queen Anne, Renaissance Revival and Romanesque mansions, the variety of historical townhouses and apartment buildings has made this more than just a neighborhood but more an area to call home. Fifth Avenue and Seventh Avenue are the primary streets in the neighborhood and are filled with boutiques, bars, vintage clothing shops and top rated restaurants.
Park Slope’s proximity to Prospect Park is yet another alluring factor, bringing families and friends to this luxurious expanse of grassy acreage daily. Consisting of 585 acres, over 30,000 trees, a 60 acre lake, a 90 acre meadow and Brooklyn’s only forest, this place is a sight to be seen. During the winter season, ice skating, road races and dog walking all happen in Prospect Park. In the summer time, horse back riding, tennis and even a quilt exhibit bring people of all ages to this open oasis. When you decide you want to escape the open and return to the hustle bustle of Manhattan, let the subway lines deliver you to Manhattan in a mere matter of minutes.
