Prospect Park South Real Estate

A tiny corner of Brooklyn within the larger framework of Flatbush, Prospect Park South was developed at the turn-of-the-century by visionary developer Dean Alvord who dreamed of grand homes and a country setting for the borough's growing upper class. The area was named a historic district by the New York City Landmark and Preservation Commission in 1979. Some of the bungalow homes are perfect examples of this type of early 1900s uniquely American housing styles.

At certain spots, the neighborhood is an architectural time capsule, a study in how people lived over 100 years ago. Some of these homes have original detailing, including driveways and garages at the back of the homes. There is majesty here, and in certain pockets affordability for people looking for a fixer-upper, long-term investment, or prewar apartment amidst this interesting Brooklyn history. Some residences have seven bedrooms, front porches, and great backyards with staircases descending from the living rooms or kitchens of the home.

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Dine: Picket Fence. Part of Cortelyou Road's culinary scene, Picket Fence serves its own brand of American comfort food.

Do: House tour. Books on this neighborhood describe the homes and the people who built and lived in them to excruciating detail. It's worth it.

See: Albermarle Road. The historic homes are a glimpse into an earlier New York and Brooklyn's early greatness. It's Victorian Brooklyn at its best.
