Flatbush Real Estate

Flatbush has flavor. Spice stores, Caribbean men playing checkers on the street on hot summer days, warm roti and good coffee shops to get you through the cold winter—there is good life in this neighborhood that was once home to Brooklyn's famous Ebbets Field.

Today, the diverse home stock and proximity to Prospect Park, solid hospitals and health care facilities, and a penchant for home ownership keep this diverse neighborhood on the up and up when it comes to neighborhood pride. Sundays are filled with families heading to the many churches, sitting outside on front porches, and enjoying backyard barbecues.

On the main strips of Nostrand, Church, Flatbush, and Coney Island Avenue, a variety of food choices make the neighborhood a delight for the senses. Just a walk down the street transports you to other worlds. Flatbush has become a safe haven for investors and homeowners seeking value.

The Victorian homes along Ditmas Avenue have historic charm and strong bones. The multi-family apartment buildings off Flatbush Avenue have large units. The three-story homes along Midwood have backyards. Surprisingly, there are small bed and breakfasts throughout the neighborhood. A proximity to Brooklyn College gives the area the air of constant youth, intelligence, and ambition. The children born here don't take their good fortune for granted. They want to give back to the families who sacrificed for them and the city who made their growth possible.
