Prospect Heights Reviews
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!!
Very diverse, yet can be busy with the Barclays Center events. but always something to do! Lots of bars, restaurants and stores to shop at.
