"A view of Prospect Park"

This street would be absolutely a dream to live on, if you could get an apartment, especially for young families. Park Slope, once not the greatest neighborhood, over the last thirty years has become a safe place for youung, trendy parents to come raise their kids. The playground across the street is highly populated, and for those single moms out there, single dads come there all the time as it is so close. Come on a weekend or just after 5-6PM in summer before the light fades, and there are an awful lot of men with kids not wearing rings. Or if you want to find playdates for your kids, this is the place. There aren't a lot of attractions on the street, other than the nearby Pavilion movie theatre, and the traffic is atrocious, but given the proximity of the F train, who cares?

For its place as a main thoroughfare, it's also pretty clean, and the cars don't really speed down Prospect Park West as they do many other areas of Brooklyn. There seems to be some sort of neighborhood beautification committee, I see signs for it all the time.
