Prospect Heights is considered an Old-Brooklyn neighborhood, but its booming bar scene, charming eateries and cutesy shops give the nabe a leg up as one of the trendiest places to live and visit. Apart from scoping out the bustling booze dens and enjoying frosty treats from Ample Hills (one of the best ice cream shops in NYC) on Vanderbilt Ave, you’ll also stumble upon one of the best NYC parks, the ever-gorgeous Prospect Park. Prospect Heights is also conveniently located within walking distance of popular New York attractions like the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum.
