Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Real Estate

Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is one of the boroughs most underrated neighborhoods for a reason. It's relatively undiscovered. Why? People rarely put their homes on the market.

Chalk white townhouses, one after the other, define these streets as much as the single-family homes owned by doctors, merchants, judges, and lawyers through the 1950s and 60s. The original Ebbets Field was in this neighborhood bordering the eastern section of Prospect Park near the zoo, Lefferts Historic House, Lincoln Road Playground, and Audubon Center.

Now strong in Caribbean descent, the streets are alive with the sounds and smells of diversity. On warm days in the summer, men play dominos on stoops near A-frame apartment buildings with spacious parlor rooms inside. Walk down Lincoln Road, Maple or Midwood Street crossing Bedford or Rogers Avenue, homeowners will be outside sweeping their steps or taking care of flower boxes. It's hard, once you see it, not to fall in love with this historic and appreciating neighborhood.

Because of the area's success, new developments are popping up in converted apartment houses. Coffee shops and bakeries are near subway stops, joining the Jamaican and Guyanese eateries along Flatbush Avenue.

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Dine: Tugboat Tea Company. A neighborhood coffee shop that shows how the locals live.

Do: Lefferts Historic House Museum. See how one of Brooklyn's earliest settlers, the Lefferts family, lived. It's educational, entertaining, and mystical.

See: Townhouses. Row upon row of limestone townhomes on Lincoln Road is a pretty sight. If you've never been before, you'll see the borough in a whole new light.
