"Great vibe, lovely street"

The thing that's great about 5th Avenue in Park Slope is that there is something to do - or buy - no matter what your mood or interests have you craving. There is a lot of excellent second hand and vintage shopping to be had, and you can get everything from a surprisingly decent burger at Aperitivo's brunch for $9.95 to some first class sea bass at Al Di La.

The street itself is rather like a long shopping strip, and stays that way until you find yourself leaving the neighborhood of Park Slope. Then it becomes rather residential, and not nearly as lovely. Down in the Windsor Terrace/ Sunset Park area of the street you may not have the same amenities as you find in Park Slope, but this area is quiet and close enough to the good life to make it a great street to live on.
  • Awesome restuarant in Al Di La
  • lots of bars
  • some really awesome shops
  • noisy at night due to nightlife
  • can be difficult to find parking anywhere in the area

"Best Place for Bars"

I couldn't love 5th Avenue, located in the neighborhood of Park Slope in Brooklyn, NY more! There are so many areas to go, I could walk up and down this avenue for hours!

One of my favorite places to go would be Gingers Bar on 5th and 5th. It is a smaller lesbian bar with pool in the back. It's a great place to go for Happy Hour and has a relaxed atmosphere that makes you want to stay for hours. The bartenders are friendly and accommodating!

I love the restaurant Nana's that serves Japanese food. Their sushi is amazing and I have gone there many times to dine and wine with friends after work.

And of course, there is the infamous Southpaw located on 5th Avenue as well. I have seen many concerts there, including Tegan and Sara, my favorite band ever. And across the street is Keyfoods, a great supermarket to go to get some healthy food!

All in all, this is a fantastic street and is definitely worth visiting!

"5th Avenue Is Great"

This street is filled with restaurants, stores, shopping and fun. Park Slope is a fantastic neighborhood filled with so many amenities, it's hard to go far. There are plenty of housing options and places to go. I love this section of Brooklyn because it is chalked full of things to do and there are parks. It's filled with great housing as well, so this is a prime area to live if you're thinking of moving here from another part of the city. All in all, a great neighborhood.

"Hip, Fun , Fresh Neighborhood"

5th avenue in Brooklyn is a a long strip of small boutiques, shops, and other neighborhood services. The area which is in Park slope is home to many families and is a residential area for young adults just starting out on their own as well. Some of the stores in the strip include a Brooklyn Industries, Luscious Food, and many deli's and cafes.

On any Saturday, one will see people pushing babies in strollers and young toddlers just old enough to walk, to the park or to the nearest ice cream shop. The area has many restaurants, which many of the couples can also enjoy.

The area ,being residential also has all the services it needs including banks, nail salons, and supermarkets. With everything at a person's hands, they won't ever have to travel out the neighborhood on any occasion.
