Park Slope has a low violent crime rate and a below average property crime rate for New York City.


Park Slope is the butt of many jokes thanks to its brigades of young moms in yoga wear pushing strollers down its sidewalks, its utopian food co-op, and the rise of babycinnos (it's a cappuccino, but just with milk). But the reality is this Brooklyn community creates die-hard fans out of its residents. While it won't get any awards for creative naming (it's on a slope next to a park) it does have charm and easy living in spades. People know their neighbors here and love the small town feel, the low crime, and the great public school – not to mention tons of dining and shopping options. It was ranked "Most Liveable Neighborhood" in New York City several years ago.

Like other neighborhoods in this part of Brooklyn, the most prominent architectural feature here are the well-maintained brownstones lining Park Slope's leafy streets. You'll also find elegant pre-war brick apartment buildings and a number of mansions, though many of these have been repurposed into schools. New development is bringing in luxury condo buildings as well.

Fifth Avenue and Seventh avenue are the main shopping and dining hubs. They've got a large selection of restaurants and bars, boutiques, thrift stores, home décor, and toy stores.

By far the best feature of the neighborhood is its location next to all 585 acres (237 hectares) of Prospect Park. Designed by the same gentlemen responsible for Manhattan's iconic Central Park, you'll find plenty of grassy spaces for lounging around, walking and running paths, a lake, fishing, athletic fields, horseback riding, nature walks, boating, playgrounds, and a green market.

When you're feeling cultural you're a short walk to the Brooklyn Museum, which has everything from ancient Egyptian relics to contemporary paintings, and the 52 acre Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, which hosts the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. In the corner of the neighborhood is the Barclays Center, a massive arena complex that hosts professional basketball and hockey games, boxing matches, concerts, and other events.

Park Slope is bordered on the north by Fort Greene and Prospect Heights, on the east by Prospect Park, on the south by South Slope, and on the west by Gowanus and Boerum Hill.
