Welcome to Park Slope, Brooklyn

Cozy small-town vibes with access to upscale amenities 
 
Originally inhabited by the Lenape people in the 17th century, the area now known as Park Slope used to be farmlands and woods. Gradual development in the 1960s pioneered the emergence of massive brownstones, which now lend the neighborhood its beloved, vintage aesthetic. Luxurious penthouses, mansions, and brownstones fill up the neighborhood, while bus lines aid commuters within the neighborhood. The New York City Subway is efficient for hopping between here and Manhattan and other nearby neighborhoods. The Park Slope Historic District features historic buildings dating back to the 1860s that are exclusively residential. With a mix of indie boutiques, cozy little bars, and restaurants tucked around the tree-lined streets, locals and visitors have plenty of options without stepping out of town.
