Prospect Heights is a colorful and diverse neighborhood anchored by multiple cultural institutions: Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Barclay’s Center, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, and the gorgeous central branch of the Brooklyn Library.
Turn down any side street, however, and you’ll find gorgeous old brownstones, stately coops, and new developments on quiet, tree-lined streets. The commercial venues of Vanderbilt and Washington Avenues offer a myriad of restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, craft cocktail bars, cafes, and boutiques with a distinctly “come as you are” Brooklyn attitude. Hot spots include: Faun, Tom’s, White Tiger, Unnameable Books, Chuko, Olmsted, Bearded Lady, and The Islands.
