"Beautiful Street Bordering the Park"
Prospect Park Southwest is a beautiful street that runs adjacent to Prospect Park, the largest park in the borough of Brooklyn. At one time, this was not a very desirable area, but there has been a lot of revitalization in this part of Brooklyn and now it is an extremely upscale address to possess. It is not a very long street. It runs between Park Circle and Bartel Pritchard Square, and consists mostly of small to medium apartment houses with some smaller individual or multi-family homes. There are at least three formal entrances to the park off Prospect Park Southwest and several other ways to enter. Living alongside the park is lovely and serene and residents and tourists alike can take advantage of the walking trails, the lake, the zoo and various other amenities. There are few, if any commercial establishments on this street, so you will need to walk or drive to adjacent streets to find shops and/or restaurants. However, this entire side of the park is a little more subdued than the Flatbush Avenue side, which has more activity. Public transportation is good -- there is a bus that runs on the street. And residents are not far from Methodist Hospital, which is less than a mile away.
