Prospect Heights is a beautiful historic neighborhood in Brooklyn. There are tree-lined streets and stately brownstone row-houses dating back to the late 19th Century. It's situated near Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Central Library, Grand Army Plaza and Eastern Parkway where the West Indian Day Parade takes place each year. It's a diverse neighborhood in close proximity to most MTA lines and the LIRR. Fun fact: show Living Single was set and filmed here. My main critique is that motorists and bicyclists don't always stop at the stop signs. I've seen someone get and hit and was almost hit myself.

I love it! Prospect Heights is great. It's convenient to subways, has great food, coffee and bars, and is just a nice area. The one big downside is that there aren't any outstanding supermarkets. There are a few okay ones but I have to bike or take the subway to get to a really great one.
This neighborhood is amazing, the mix of different people and community is wonderful. I love how you can eat a huge range of different cuisines. The neighborhood has a mix of families, different genders, lots of dogs, and different ethnicities. I find my neighbors to be very friendly and well meaning people. The night-life is great. I also love walking around in the evening. The proximity to Prospect Park is amazing!!
