It’s no surprise that Prospect Park South, Brooklyn NY was named in a Streeteasy report on The Top 10 up and coming NYC neighborhoods, being ranked #7 on the list. The reasons for PPS earning a spot on this list are clear, i.e. low rents compared to much more expensive rents in nearby Park Slope and Windsor Terrace neighborhoods, proximity to Prospect Park, conveniently located for shopping and transportation into Manhattan. Prospect Park South is a very beautiful Brooklyn's neighborhood which has the feel of being in the suburbs only with all of the energy of the city close by.
Prospect Park South is bordered by Prospect Park and the Prospect Parade Grounds to the North, Ocean Avenue & the BMT subway tracks to the East, Beverly Road to the South and Coney Island Avenue to the West.
Most of Prospect Park South is comprised of The Prospect Park South Historic District designated since 1979 and listed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
