A Brooklyn neighborhood with an effortlessly cool vibe, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is a go-to destination for unique architecture and great shopping and dining.
From sprawling prewar rowhouses to blocks of gorgeous townhouses, there is a little bit of something for everyone in this vibrant district. The housing stock consists of mainly single-family homes, co-ops, and apartment complexes. A collection of mom-and-pop businesses, Caribbean-themed restaurants, and retail strips make up the neighborhood’s bustling central hub. Trendy cafes and farm-to-table eateries share the space with eclectic boutiques. An influx of new residents over the last decade has prompted a wave of new construction and business development in the region, making it a desirable place to call home.
The scenery and outdoor recreation in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens are second to none. Prospect Park borders one side of the community, giving locals access to acres of stunning lawns fit for bird watching, skating, and jogging. Nethermead, a meadow in Prospect Park, is a great place to spend a lazy weekend afternoon reading or taking in nature, while the nearby Brooklyn Botanical Garden features acres of beautiful flowers and foliage. Every spring, residents gather for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival.
