Prospect Heights isn’t the closest Brooklyn neighborhood to Manhattan, but it’s one of the best-served in terms of mass transit.

Nestled between Crown Heights and Park Slope, almost every train line is nearby, which makes commuting to any part of the city a breeze. Among the local transit options are the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q and R at Atlantic Avenue/Barclays Center and the 2, 3, B and Q, which run down Flatbush Avenue on the neighborhood’s western edge. Just outside the nabe, the C and G are only a few blocks to the north and the Franklin Avenue Shuttle is just to the east.
