Prospect Park and Ditmas Park
Prospect Park South features some of the most glamorous single-family, wood-frame 'mansions' built in the 1890's-1920's between Church Avenue and Beverly Road, and was designated a Landmarked Neighborhood in 1979: PDF
Ditmas Park is another subdivision, but is used to describe most of Victorian Flatbush, describing the area between Beverly Road and Avenue H, with Cortelyou Road being the main commercial hub. The neighborhood generally has 1-2 family homes built in the 1890's-1920's on the named streets, with pre-war elevator and walkup multifamily buildings on the numbered streets.
Both neighborhoods feature beautiful architecture, tree-canopied streets and a laid-back vibe.
Q local and B express trains, multiple bus routes.
