Prospect Heights's storied past and strong sense of community means there's plenty of places to visit year round. On Saturdays, hit the Greenmarket at Grand Army Plaza before venturing to visit the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. If you'd like to read more about all you've seen stop at the main Brooklyn Public Library, built in the shape of an open book. A favorite among all ages is the Prospect Park Zoo, where the sea lions put on a show three times every day. If their acrobatics inspire you take a spin of your own on the Carousel.
The main shopping street of Prospect Heights is Vanderbilt Avenue. Small, local shops abound allowing for an unparalleled diversity. Get an ice coffee at Joyce and head over to the Underhill playground or have brunch at the Milk Bar.
Tips From The Locals
Spend a couple of hours at…The Brooklyn Museum and take in the expansive collection of Egyptian antiquities or be fascinated by more contemporary exhibitions like ‘Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe’
Be sure to stop by….. Ample Hills Creamery and to feel better about indulging in all the mouthwatering flavors hop onto the stationary bike and pedal to churn out your very own ice cream (and yes, burn a few calories in the process).
