Flatbush

Running from Ocean Avenue to the west, Nostrand Avenue to the east, Parkside Avenue to the north and Avenue I to the south, Flatbush was one of the original six towns in Brooklyn and had remained farmland until the Flatbush and Coney Island Railroad opened in 1878.

Located in central Brooklyn, Flatbush is made up of various neighborhoods (including Midwood Albemarle Terrace-Kenmore Terrace, Prospect Park South and Ditmas Park). With close proximity to the well-known attractions and institutions, it's a perfect neighborhood for those looking to stay busy.

The 526-acre Prospect Park (designed by Frederick Law Olmstead who also created Central Park) has a long list of attractions, including the Wollman Rink, the Oriental Pavilion's formal gardens and Prospect Park Lake for boating and fishing for striped bass. Brooklyn College's butterfly-filled community garden is also popular spot for relaxation.

Flatbush Avenue is the neighborhood's main commercial thoroughfare, where you can find just about anything you need. In South Flatbush, a three-way intersection known as "the Junction" is now a large mall.

Housing Stock: Mid-rise brick apartment buildings, row houses, high-rise apartment buildings and single-family homes.
