    AROUND THE BLOCK
    PROSPECT PARK SOUTH:
    A historic district with undeniable charm.
    19th century developer Dean Alvord bought this land with the intention of bringing the countryside into New York City, and his vision is largely alive today; trees are set back from the street and plots are large, ensuring a leafy, suburban feel. The architecture varies from home to home, lending the area a slightly quirky feel.
    WHAT TO EXPECT:
    Family-friendly and very residential. Visually it’s like two neighborhoods in one.
    Below Church Ave. you’ll find grand homes you have to see to believe. Between Church Ave. and Prospect Park, streets of brick apartment buildings have a totally different look. There are very few businesses, which keeps traffic low on the streets and sidewalks.
    THE LIFESTYLE:
    People are here to stay, and really savor the quiet of the neighborhood.
    There isn’t a lot of turnover in this peaceful corner of Brooklyn. The result is a neighborly feel, and plenty of involvement community associations.
    UNEXPECTED APPEAL:
    You’ll stay in touch with your big city roots.
    There’s very little shopping within this small neighborhood, so you’ll be frequenting the surrounding area, which features the vibrant mix of people and businesses that Brooklyn is known for
    THE MARKET:
    A split between apartments and totally unique single-family homes.
    There are very few vacancies in the extraordinary, one-of-a-kind single family homes the area is known for, so potential buyers should act fast. A 9-bedroom home is not unheard of. Adjacent to Prospect Park you’ll find large apartment buildings with good value in 1-3 bedroom condos and co-ops.
    YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH:
    Having Prospect Park as your backyard.
    How does a 526-acre yard sound? The northern boundary of the neighborhood is the borough’s beloved Prospect Park.
