"Lots to eat, lots to buy, lots to behold"

7th Ave is probably the second best Avenue in Park Slope - it may be way up on the hill beside (though not RIGHT beside) Prospect Park, but there is plenty to do up here if you have a lot of money burning a hole in your pocket. Shoe Mine on 7th Ave between 16th and Windsor Pl is a really great tiny shoe shop, and there is a "Shoe Hospital" on 7th at 7th for when your shoes break down. There is absolutely no shortage of eateries on this street - the avenue is so full of them that you may find it hard to decide just where you want to go. Cafe Steinhof at 14th St. is one of the standouts, and the Smiling Pizzeria at 9th St is another good place to stop in.

Just like much of Park Slope, 7th Ave is tree-lined and fenced in with lovely brownstones and is quite a nice walk in any season.
  • decent eating, shopping
  • proximity to Prospect Park
  • bar crowd makes for loud nights
  • lack of parking

"Loud but Great Atmosphere!"

7th Avenue is located in the Park Slope neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. Park Slope is a very up and coming area with lots of great stuff to do, including pool, bars and restaurants.

The Q train is located right off the 7th avenue stop and is in the center of activity! You can stop in any of the bodegas and get a sandwich from the deli's there. Or you can go to Burrito Bar and get an amazing smoothie with your Mexican food! There's also a pool hall that is a little expensive but a good atmosphere.

7th Avenue doesn't have much greenage, with the trees being more towards 6th avenue, but it makes up for it with the activities you can do. I wouldn't live off this street, but I absolutely love visiting it!

"On 7th Avenue"

Though 7th Avenue, might be lacking in terms of restarunts and bars like 6th Avenue has, it will not slight you in terms of small service oriented businesses, such as laundromats, convenience stores, etc. This street does border Greenwood Cemetary, so if you're not a fan of sleeping next to one, this may not be the street for you, but this is a very nice neighborhood and think you should consider it on a move to Brooklyn.
