Lefferts Gardens

Bordered by Prospect Park, Lefferts Gardens is a residential neighborhood big on charm that still remains under the radar.

Located on the south end of Prospect Park, Lefferts Gardens is a residential mix of stately townhouses, Caribbean restaurants, and a diverse population. It seems like residents spend half their time in the neighborhood and half in the park, not surprising considering that Prospect Park’s new Lakeside Skating Rink is located just nearby. What the main drags lack in hip bars or restaurants they make up for with some of the best Caribbean food in Brooklyn. Photo courtesy of Wally Gobetz via Flickr.
