I had lived in Manhattan from 1989-1994, but had never been to Park Slope, Brooklyn. On a recent trip back to NYC, I went to Brooklyn and was delighted with what I found.
Park Slope is a historical and upmarket area with many fine brownstones, stores, restaurants on the West Side of Prospect Park. Carroll Street is one of the most beautiful streets in all of New York and has a rich variety of 19th Century architecture.
Along Fifth and Seventh Avenues you can find many restaurants, cafes and stores. The area is full of families and strollers, but also seems to accomodate a wide variety of people of every age and income bracket.
The first really beautiful spring day in early April we walked down Carroll Street. I saw magnolia trees and tulips and the sparkling golden brick brownstones.over 7 years ago
