Prospect Heights is a neighborhood with a similar feel to the more well-known Park Slope. Its main draws are its close proximity to Prospect Park, which lies at the southern border of the neighborhood, and its historic brownstones.
Prospect Heights is bounded by Atlantic Avenue to the north; Flatbush Avenue to the west; Eastern Parkway to the south; and Washington Avenue to the east. Barclays Center, home to the Brooklyn Nets, lies at the northwest corner of the neighborhood. Other notable landmarks include Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Museum, and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.
The neighborhood is well-served by public transportation with the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, and Q trains all making stops within the neighborhood’s boundaries. The A and C lines also make stops just north of Atlantic Avenue.
