Welcome to Prospect Heights

Comfortable bohemia in an iconic Brooklyn neighborhood
 
This diverse and energetic neighborhood is loaded with culture and trendy spots while still enjoying a quieter, spacious feel. It seamlessly blends the old and the new, and many of Brooklyn’s hot spots are housed here. Residents enjoy both an easy commute to Manhattan and the best of Brooklyn outside their front doors.
 
Prospect Park opened to the public in 1867, though it wasn’t completed fully until 1873. Its opening began a surge of housing development throughout Prospect Heights. The openings of other Brooklyn institutions, such as the Brooklyn Museum, also furthered the neighborhood’s development. While it had its ups and downs, it was eventually designated a historic district and settled into the energetic neighborhood it is today.
 
Tree-lined streets house classic brownstones that are the staple of the neighborhood and date back to the 1890s. However, many newly built luxury condominiums have found their place in this vibrant neighborhood, giving it a wide range of options for a wide variety of tastes.
