Property Description

What you need most now is peace and nature in the city. Make your way down your block past Prospect Park-the crown jewel of Brooklyn- and smell the flowers blooming in the historic Botanic Gardens. Turning the key to your new home you drop your keys and kick off your shoes in the entry area and appreciate the beautiful bordered floors and high ceilings. The modern open kitchen provides ample space to cook the fresh produce you bought at the Grand Army Plaza farmer's market down the block on Saturday. You greet your family, your pets, and turn on your music in the majestic living room with charming pre-war accents, which leads through a corridor with floor to ceiling closets to your large master bedroom. You leave in the morning as you exit the gorgeous marble art deco lobby of your pre-war elevator building. You might grab your bike from the locked bike room and ride past the grand Brooklyn Museum, the Public Library at Grand Army and through the paths of Prospect Park, or hop on the 2/3, 4/5, or B/Q train to the city. Your 35 unit coop with a live-in super on St John's boulevard in the most sought after borough and is quiet enough to hear birds chirping. You have found your place on the most idyllic and convenient block in your diverse Brooklyn community. You can't wait to come home again!

Prospect Heights | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Prospect Heights is a small residential neighborhood surrounded by big attractions. It’s rich in culture and offers the perfect blend of old Brooklyn charm and modern-day hipness. 

Residents of this tight-knit community include young professionals, families and long-time residents. It’s a walkers paradise - just steps from Prospect Park and a short walking distance to neighborhoods like Downtown Brooklyn, Fort Green and Clinton. You’re close to culture too. Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Library, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Barclays Center are all nearby.

Prospect Heights is bordered by Flatbush Avenue to the west, Washington Avenue to the east, Atlantic Avenue and Dean Street to the north and Eastern Parkway to the south.

Prospect Heights, like many areas of New York City, was first inhabited by indigenous tribes and eventually settled by the Dutch and turned into farmland. 

A significant part of the Revolutionary War was fought in Prospect Heights and the surrounding areas. Known as the Battle of Brooklyn, it was the first military engagement following the Declaration of Independence. Things didn’t go so well for American forces so they retreated and the British occupied Manhattan for several years after the Battle of Brooklyn.

In 1867, the opening of Prospect Park caused major housing growth in Prospect Heights. The middle-class neighborhood was soon populated by Jewish, Italian, and Irish workers. Many of which were shop-owners or employed as laborers in nearby factories.

Housing in Prospect Heights includes single-family row houses, historic townhouses, co-ops, and new luxury condos. The median listed price for a 1-bedroom in Prospect Heights is $680,000 with an average price per square foot is $944.

The neighborhood's commercial artery runs along Vanderbilt Avenue and Washington Avenue. The variety of businesses adds to the charm of the neighborhood. They include bars, pubs, restaurants and mom-and-pop stores of all types. The shops and eateries are a perfect alternative to the big-name attractions that bracket the neighborhood. It's a little bit of everything in this neighborhood. 

Subways are plentiful in Prospect Heights. Its proximity to Manhattan is another perk of the neighborhood. It's about a half-hour train ride. The B, D, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4 and 5 subway lines all serve the Atlantic Avenue/Barclays Center station. 2, 3, 4, B and Q trains cover the neighborhood and the A and C trains are nearby too.
