Park Slope

A family-friendly neighborhood with impressive architecture, popular restaurants, and Brooklyn’s best park.

Park Slope is one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods for its picture-perfect brownstone blocks, mom-and-pop shops, and proximity to Prospect Park. The neighborhood faces the western end of the park, with the surrounding residential blocks boasting some of the best architecture in the entire borough. While the neighborhood is known for its family-friendly vibe, Park Slope's two main drags -- 5th and 7th avenues -- have plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to cater to a younger crowd. With a neighborhood this big, visitors have a choice between upscale restaurants and cocktail bars and more casual, laid-back spots. Photo courtesy of Wally Gobetz via Flickr.
