Your 30-minute subway ride packed with the entirety of New York City is never going to change. The atmosphere once you get above ground is completely up to you.
If you’ve been itching to scrap your cramped Manhattan apartment (but the idea of stroller-lined Park Slope makes you lose your lunch), take a closer look at Prospect Heights.
The low-key Brooklyn hood just north of Grand Army Plaza has been the go-to for new-to-NYC folks for years, but now it seems to be stealing some of the spotlight from the Fort Greenes and Cobble Hills of the world.
Multiple subway lines will lead you back into the city for when you need to get your Babbo fix, but with all the new bars and restaurants popping up, we’re sure those trips won’t seem so needed after a while.
Take a peek at some of the reasons why Prospect Heights is on the up--even if just for the real-estate drool factor.
