Get to know Park Slope

New York’s Bonafide Suburbs

Located in the northwestern section of Brooklyn and just south of Prospect Park, Park Slope is one of New York City’s most desirable neighborhoods. Named for its location on the western slope of neighboring Prospect Park, it has a distinct small-town feel but all the conveniences of modern urban living.

The neighborhood is a mix of families, young professionals, and empty nesters. It’s a slower-paced place to live compared to much of Manhattan, with Prospect Park on its eastern border and street after tree-lined street of brownstone and limestone townhouses, the grandest of them nearest to the park.

To say that the area has become family-friendly is an understatement. Park Slope has become nearly synonymous with the “stroller set.” New parents seem to flock to Park Slope for its abundance of children’s activities and for Prospect Park itself, which offers a large playground and carousel.

Many of these children attend the local schools (some private, some public), which have an excellent reputation. Many of the parents stay here long after their kids have grown up and moved on.

Park Slope has seen some development in recent years as well. New condo buildings have sprouted up in pockets along Fourth Avenue. And a few new hotels are under construction along Flatbush Avenue as well. The neighborhood also has an increasing number of shops and restaurants catering to the growing population.

Park Slope History & Culture

Though modern-day Brooklyn is coextensive with Kings County, this was not always the case. South Brooklyn, an area in central Kings County extending to the former Brooklyn city line near Green-Wood Cemetery’s southern border, was originally settled by the Canarsee Indians, one of several indigenous Lenape peoples who farmed and hunted on the land. The Lenape typically lived in wigwams, and had larger fishing and hunting communities near freshwater sites on higher land. Several Lenape roads crossed the landscape and were later widened into “ferry roads” by 17th-century Dutch settlers, since they were used to provide transport to the waterfront. One was the Flatbush Road, running roughly north–south to the east of the path of present-day Flatbush Avenue. Just north of modern-day Park Slope was the Jamaica Road, running east to Jamaica, Queens, on what is now the path of Fulton Street.

The first European settlement occurred in 1637-1639 when Willem Kieft, the Dutch West India Company’s director, purchased almost all land in what is now Brooklyn and Queens. The area was used as farmland over the next two centuries.

During the American Revolutionary War, on August 27, 1776, the Park Slope area served as the backdrop for the beginning of the Battle of Long Island. In this battle, over 10,000 British soldiers and Hessian mercenaries routed outnumbered American forces, which resulted in the British occupation of Long and Staten Islands. The Battle Pass site is now preserved in Prospect Park, while on Fifth Avenue, there is a reconstruction of the Old Stone House, a farmhouse where a countercharge covered the American retreat.
