Prospect Heights is a small and interesting Brooklyn neighborhood. Architecturally, it is a mixture of old brownstones, abandoned factories and new luxury buildings, all mixed in with picturesque tree-lined streets. In this neighborhood, the traditional and the modern mesh. If you want to visit the more historic areas stick to the southern edge, via Eastern Parkway between Grand Army Plaza and Washington Avenue. There, you will find opulent buildings reminiscent of the museums on Manhattan's Upper East Side. If instead you are interested in the modern, take a look at the luxury residential suites designed by architect Richard Meier in 2008 at 1 Grand Army Plaza. Another landmark in Prospect Heights is the Centennial Brooklyn Botanical Garden, wonderful particularly in spring for its cherry blossom garden. The Brooklyn Botanical Garden is located in Prospect Park, the Central Park of Brooklyn. Next to the Botanical Gardens, you will find the renovated Brooklyn Museum.
Prospect Heights is bounded by Flatbush Avenue to the west and Washington Avenue to the east, Atlantic Avenue to the north and Eastern Parkway to the south. Subways B and Q get you to Prospect Park Station with ease. Enjoy the green space of Prospect Park and venture into the rest of Brooklyn to get a taste of the neighboring hoods.
