Prospect Heights lies just north of Park Slope and Prospect Park and, though small, holds much to discover. The area is known for its picturesque, tree-lined streets, diverse community and generally more bohemian pace.
Esteemed borough institutions like the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden are main draws for non-residents, but travel just a few blocks north -- Prospect Heights extends to Atlantic Avenue -- and you’ll find a plethora of shops, cafes and oddities to uncover. Sit down for a Korean lunch, dig through piles of used books and cap your day with a drink from a highly curated cocktail menu.
