City Guides: Prospect Heights

Prospect Heights City Guide Title Page

Prospect Heights is such a fun and vibrant neighborhood in Brooklyn. And one we visit quite often! This up-and-coming area houses so many fun activities and so many of our favorite places to eat! Not to mention the location couldn’t be better if you are a sucker for green spaces. Walk a couple of blocks and your eyes will gaze upon the openness of Prospect Park!While we enjoy this location mostly in the summer — because of the countless things to do outdoors – every so often we make the walk from Park Slope just to become mesmerized by all the beautiful Brooklyn brownstones.

So, if you are ever in the area, be sure to hit up the spots below. I’m telling you, you won’t be disappointed!
