Click 's to Rate!

Prospect Park South/Kensington is an affordable choice for those who want to live steps from Brooklyn’s finest public park. Located just south of the Prospect Park parade grounds, the neighborhood extends south to Beverley Road, and is bounded by Ocean Avenue and Coney Island Avenue. The area is safe and mainly populated by families, making it ideal for those looking to settle down or enjoy a quieter side of New York life. Searching for a garage and yard? As designated by New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, the neighborhood is a historic district, and Victorian beauties line many of the residential streets. Multi­families with decorative, historic details are found along many of the main roads. The area has experienced less gentrification than other nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods, and still maintains a close-knit, suburban feel, but for a vibrant atmosphere, one can travel down Flatbush or Church Avenue for restaurants and shopping. Dining favorites among the locals are AM Thai Bistro for excellent pad thai delivered, Gandhi Cafe for unparalleled BYOB Indian and MangoSeed for jerk chicken in a lush atmosphere. Prospect Park South/Kensington is accessible via the B/Q subway line with three stops in the neighborhood (Prospect Park, Parkside, and Church), and many express buses serve the area as well. Drivers can easily reach the neighborhood along Ocean Avenue or Prospect Expressway.
