Developed in the late 1800s as a “country in the city” and landmarked in 1979, Prospect Park South offers house-hunters large, unique and architecturally significant properties. Whether you are looking for a Victorian, Queen Anne or a Colonial, or be it French Revival, Arts and Crafts, or Spanish Mission you crave, you just might find it among the 206 well-preserved single-family houses to be found in the exceptional Prospect Park South. That’s because this charming and exclusive community is zoned for one-family houses; each lies on a lot that’s 50 by 100 feet, at a minimum, and is set back 30 to 40 feet from the curb. Wraparound porches, seven or eight bedrooms, working fireplaces, attics and parking are some of the rare-for-the-city amenities available in Prospect Park South houses. The Prospect Park South neighborhood also has one rental building with 61 units, one 29-unit co-op and has recently added some brand new condominiums.
Proximity to the 536-acre Prospect Park is one of Prospect Park South’s most wonderful amenities. The recently renovated 40-acre Parade Grounds served as home field to some of the city’s brightest young players — from Sandy Koufax and Joe Torre to Manny Ramirez — and now features a premiere baseball diamond with a state-of-the-art scoreboard, covered dugouts, bleachers, and night lighting. Though Prospect Park South has no commercial district within its boundaries, the nearby Cortelyou Road offers a wonderful mix of cafes, bookstores, a natural-food co-op, and restaurants including the family-friendly Zagat-rated Farm on Adderley. Prospect Park South is also just 35 minutes from Manhattan from your choice of three subway stops on the Q train.
