Park Slope, located on the western slope of Prospect Park, is one of Brooklyn's most desirable and iconic neighborhoods. The neighborhood’s sterling reputation precedes it as Park Slope has long been considered to be amongst the best New York City has to offer and was even named one of the “Greatest Neighborhoods in America” by the American Planning Society. Park Slope is home to an eclectic mix of residents, with picturesque townhouses and row-houses on the neighborhood’s well-manicured, tree-lined streets attracting families looking for classic Brooklyn brownstone living, while the neighborhood’s thriving entertainment and restaurant scenes appeal to a younger, hipper crowd. 5th and 7th Ave, in particular, are home to many great boutiques, book & record stores, coffee shops, wine bars, and beer gardens. Neighboring Prospect Park is also a major attraction and a great place to spend a weekend afternoon enjoying a picnic, barbecue or bike ride.
