Topic: Prospect Heights
After renting in Park Slope for years, we’re looking to buy a 2-BR but PS is out of our budget. Prospect Heights seems like a natural move for us, but I’m stuck on a few things at the moment. Where is “prime” Prospect Heights? I imagine that the blocks between Flatbush and Vanderbilt have the closest proximity to transit, Park Slope and Prospect Park. They also seem like the nicest blocks visually, but there isn’t much inventory in that part of the area. Most of the new development in PH seems to be focused on the north ends of Washington and Vanderbilt, and that’s where the “trendy” food and dining is as well. What about the SE end of Prosepect Heights near the Museum? We’ve seen listings near Lincoln and Washington, and love the proximity to the Museum, the Botanic Gardens, GAP isn’t too far, but Park Slope is a lot further than the area closer to Flatbush. This end of the neighborhood also seems like it “stuck” in transitional gentrification. Not much progress, nor many new signs of life. Any thoughts or impressions on the area, either generaly or based on specific experiences. We’d be looking to spend around 550 in that area.
