One of Brooklyn's best neighborhoods, solidly middle class, full of classy brownstones and some very good restaurants. Next to the big Prospect Park and served by the subway, a favorite place to live for commuters into Manhattan. Take a long stroll to see the architecture.

This area of New York City is in north-western Brooklyn. Park Slope is a pleasant neighborhood with tree lined streets and brownstone houses. It's a tolerant neighborhood with mixed ethnicities. You can get a burrito or a bagel. Park Slope has the reputation for being expensive, but we had a large Airbnb apartment which was reasonably priced. Park Slope is so called because it adjacent to Prospect Park, which is a large park, especially by New York standards. The park is used for concerts , exercise and jogging. It's a popular place to play with a Frisbee. By the way, Brooklyn is one of the five boroughs of New York City.

Upscale, pretentious, and overpriced neighborhood filled with the usual pricey cheese shops, thrift "boutiques" (as opposed to normal thrift stores), and gourmet food stores where a tiny bar of chocolate costs the same as an entree from a Mexican or Chinese restaurant. And be prepared for a sea of "boutique" toy stores of the Melissa and Doug all-wood variety - you may get run over by the wealthy women dubbed "Stroller Nazis" with their cherubs out for a daily stroll with their obedient nannies.

If you are a starry-eyed non-New Yorker, you will likely find it amusing and oh so quaint. Veteran New Yorkers avoid the overpriced clothing and "pinky finger in the air" stores and head straight to the bars and restaurants, of which there is a decent variety.

Most are attracted to the brownstones, an extinct species of architecture that harkens to a more classic and supposedly refined age. There is a Sesame Street vibe to these brownstones that lull you into thinking that everyone here is lovable and gets along, but in reality there is a dark, moneyed cynicism, elitism and suspicious attitude running underneath its vaulted borders. The same homes that boast "BLM" and "Welcome LBTQ" posters in their windows contain the same people that might follow you around in a store or look at you with a worried look if you're not white and "loiter".

The majority of people here are transplants from the Midwest, upstate, or non-diverse areas of the country seeking to remake diverse and vibrant NYC in their own image. Combined with the geographical isolation of Brooklyn (a suburban vibe permeates the air despite the subway being nearby), it creates an unpleasant attitude.

A place to visit, not to live.

This is a lovely neighborhood with many blocks so spiffy that they look like a movie set. Some pleasant shopping streets with cafes and restaurants. Lots of tree-lined streets. Very upscale.

We visited the park to see the changing leaves but was a shame that the leaves in Brooklyn did not start to change yet.

My youngest son and DIL purchased a brownstone in Park Slope last August. It is gentrifying, but still very diverse. I think it will be done correctly, although the "supertall" currently under construction on DeKalb Street will change the feel of things. Away from downtown with the other skyscrapers, most streets are comfortable and human-scale for strolling. And a plethora of restaurants. We visited before T-giving in 2020 during Covid-19 and again in April and this last time the place was hopping. WITH MASKS as it should be until this nightmare is behind us.

Park Slope is in Brooklyn. It has become gentrified and the housing stock has improved.. We had an Air B and B rental, it took up an entire floor of an older-style apartment building, which had been nicely redecorated. We felt safe walking aroud, there's lots of places to shop and eat. Park Slope has a sizeable population of liberal Jews. We took a walk to Prospect Park, so nice to have some open space in NYC. By the way, if you want to get to Manhattan, the Subway is quick and convenient.

After so many trips to New York (>50), we wanted to do something else and Park Slope is absolutely the best neighbourhood to stay. It is relaxed, people are friendly and extremely helpful and. you can find everything you need and if you are desperate for big city live, it only takes 30 minutes and you are back in downtown Manhattan.

This charming neighborhood exemplifies the notion of gentrification. Beautiful brownstones line the streets and the whole neighborhood abuts Prospect Park.
