Prospect Heights

A small residential neighborhood with big-time cultural destinations.

Prospect Heights may be a modestly sized neighborhood, but big crowds travel here to visit the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and the impressive Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. The neighborhood’s main drag, Vanderbilt Avenue, is a great place to relax after a day at the museum with its diverse selection of bars, restaurants and cafes. The neighborhood side streets, meanwhile, offer a unique display of architecture, with rows of colorful townhouses. Photo Courtesy of Howard Brier via Flickr.
