Park Slope, Brooklyn: Trendsetting Neighborhood Home to Top-Rated Restaurants and Prospect Park
Park Slope was named the best place to live in New York City by New York magazine in 2010, and it’s not hard to see why. Its leafy streets are lined with charming brownstones as well as scores of top-rated restaurants and trendsetting boutiques. Located in west Brooklyn, Park Slope has been attracting privileged city dwellers since the late 19th century, when Victorian mansions began sprouting up in an area dubbed the Gold Coast. In recent years, the neighborhood has become an enclave for artistic types and hip young families.
But Park Slope’s main attraction is still Prospect Park. In fact, the neighborhood takes its name from its location on the western slope of this 585-acre landscaping masterpiece. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the 1860s, the park includes an intricate watercourse and the last of Brooklyn’s indigenous forests. Crowds gather here during the summer for free concerts and farmers’ markets; ice-skating and sledding are popular activities in the winter.
