Most of the area of Prospect Heights Brooklyn New York was developed in the 1870's after Prospect Park was completed. Most of the apartment buildings in Prospect Heights Brooklyn New York tower over Grand Army Plaza and Prospect Park. These buildings have been converted to condominiums and cooperative apartments. The price range of housing in Prospect Heights Brooklyn New York is from $500,000 to several million dollars. By the late 1870s, with horse-drawn rail carts running to the park bringing many rich New Yorkers in the process, the neighborhood dramatically changed. Many of the large Victorian mansions on Prospect Park West, known as the Gold Coast, were built in the 1880s and 1890s to take advantage of the beautiful park views. Today, many of these buildings are preserved within the 24-block Park Slope Historic District, one of New York's largest landmarked neighborhoods. By 1883, with the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge, Park Slope continued to boom and subsequent brick and brownstone structures pushed the neighborhood's borders farther. In the Southern Slope, by the Gowanus Canal for example, there was a flourishing Italian and Irish community. These immigrants built many modest rowhouses along the waterfront where they worked. In 1892, President Grover Cleveland presided over the unveiling of The Soldiers and Sailors Arch at Grand Army Plaza, a notable Park Slope landmark.
