Bustling with hip, young families, Park Slope, Brooklyn, has long been a bastion of the intelligentsia. Fine Romanesque Revival and Queen Anne residences grace the landmarked Park Slope Historic District on the western edge of Prospect Park, which some argue is a more successful green space than Olmsted and Vaux’s earlier collaboration, Central Park.
