Park Slope

Park Slope is a neighborhood in southwest Brooklyn. It has brownstone apartments, local grocery stores, various authentic restaurants and Prospect Park. Prospect Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who also designed New York City’s iconic park Central Park in Manhattan. Cyclists, runners and walkers are most likely to use the park since Prospect Park is designed to be a gateway from the city stress that automobiles represent. Park Slope residents support independent book and record shops and have coffee at local cafes. Park slope has a good reputation for its public schools, low crime rate, huge areas of green space, lots of restaurants and bars and diverse retail sector. Many choose Park Slope to raise their families. Park Slope is about a 20 minute subway ride from the very “city” feel of Manhattan, contrary to its “neighborhood” style.


  1. A good sense of the street life in Park Slope – shops, the flea market, joggers and cyclists. Now it’s time to get closer. Get in front of some of those parked cars and let’s see brownstone life. Prospect Park is a big draw for the neighborhood and I would show some of that, particularly on weekends.

    The fire escape shot from an unusual angle is a fine photo but does not identify the neighborhood so I would eliminate it.
