Park Slope featuring street scenes

Near a large Brooklyn park, important cultural sites stand next to gracious residences, while central avenues bustle with places to eat, drink and shop.

Elegant row houses line the leafy streets of Park Slope, a typical Brooklyn neighborhood brimming with historical sites and lively arts and culture.

The neighborhood’s park, Prospect Park, is one of the borough’s largest. Overlooking the neighborhood from its eastern edge, the park is full of spots for family fun. Wander its meadows and wooded trails. Consider the history of Litchfield Villa, the Quaker Cemetery and Lefferts Historic House. Kayak, ice skate or rent bikes at the LeFrak Center. Visit red pandas and sea lions at Prospect Park Zoo. Spread out a picnic blanket and enjoy free concerts on summer evenings at the Prospect Park Bandshell.

Exit the park to the north at Grand Army Plaza, appreciating the imposing monument to the triumphant Union forces of the Civil War. This area is the heart of Brooklyn’s intellectual identity, with magnificent public institutions showing the borough’s commitment to world-class arts and culture.

Across the plaza, pass through the golden gates of the Brooklyn Public Library, a major center for free educational events. Admire its monumental art deco architecture, featuring friezes with scenes from American literature.

See global plant life at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, where specimens include carnivorous plants, tropical ferns, cherry blossoms and cacti.

Visit the Brooklyn Museum to immerse yourself in fine art and craft through the ages, along with highly anticipated themed exhibitions.

Meander past Brooklyn’s picturesque brownstones. Just west of Prospect Park, Montgomery Place is full of elegant and elaborate 19th-century architectural styles. Explore history at the Old Stone House to learn about the Battle of Brooklyn, a local conflict during the Revolutionary War. Green-Wood Cemetery is one of the city’s oldest non-denominational cemeteries, the final resting place of famous New Yorkers including composer Leonard Bernstein and artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

To experience contemporary life in lively Brooklyn, wander along 5th Avenue, where eclectic boutiques, busy coffee shops and diverse restaurants attract artists, writers and activists who have long called Park Slope home.
