What was once a sleepy enclave bounded by Flatbush Avenue, Atlantic Avenue, Washington Avenue, Eastern Parkway and Prospect Park, Prospect Heights now has multiple personalities. While its southern blocks are still known for their gorgeous Italianate and Neo-Grec brownstones and picturesque tree-lined streets, the new Pacific Park development, with the Barclays Center and numerous residential high rises, has taken over the northern side of the neighborhood west of Vanderbilt. Along the southern boundary on Eastern Parkway from Grand Army Plaza to Washington Avenue, Prospect Heights is reminiscent of Museum Mile in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Prospect Heights is filled with delicious restaurants and cultural hubs, including libraries, museums, live music venues and parks.
The Prospect Heights Historic District is the fifth largest historic district in New York City.
