Prospect Heights is the perfect melding of historical and modern Brooklyn. It’s characterized by its placement between the cultural jewels of the borough: the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Central Library and Barclays Center. In between these equally important monuments is a neighborhood filled with family-owned restaurants and shops and a thriving bar scene. You also can’t forget Brooklyn’s 585-acre Prospect Park, known for outdoor concerts, on-the-lawn movie screenings and almost everything else under the sun.
