Prospect Heights is Brooklyn's answer to Manhattan’s Museum Mile—this burgeoning neighbourhood boasts the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Gardens, and the enormous central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Known as Park Slope's pretention-less neighbour, Prospect Heights casually matches its counterpart when it comes to entertaining. The neighbourhood is home to myriad restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques that evince a distinctly “come as you are” Brooklyn vibe.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
