neighborhood guide

Ditmas Park

A picturesque Brooklyn neighborhood where the freestanding homes will make you think you’re in the suburbs.

Considered the “Suburb of Brooklyn,” this gorgeous neighborhood is distinguished by its free-standing houses with well-manicured front yards. Wander through the neighborhood side streets and the quiet, casual vibe will leave you feeling anywhere but New York City. The small-town feel carries over to the main drag of Cortelyou Road, which is lined with cafes, wine bars, and popular restaurants like Mimi’s Hummus and Farm on Adderley. Beware: the longer you stay in Ditmas, the harder it is to leave. Photo courtesy of Chris Kreussling via Flickr.
