Park Slope is an idyllic, historical neighborhood offering residents a peaceful escape from the flurry of activity of nearby Manhattan. Replete with alluring rows of tree-lined streets, picture-perfect period brownstones, and mom-and-pop shops, the area's proximity to Prospect Park has long secured its family-friendly status.
All within easy reach by numerous transit lines at Atlantic Terminal, visitors and locals flock to Park Slope's main avenues for relaxing weekend strolls to visit the many trendy, independent boutiques and take in the latest exhibition at Brooklyn Museum of Art. Park Slope's main avenues, lined with upscale restaurants, casual cafes and buzzy yet cozy bars, are a draw for the younger set and underscore the neighborhood’s appeal to diverse audiences. Beyond this is the bucolic magnificence of Brooklyn’s sprawling Prospect Park where friends and folks with their children and pets in tow enjoy picnics, outdoor concerts or ambling along the ravines and meadows. Simply walking to the park from Baltic is a pleasurable experience.
