"Take your pick of classy joints for eating, shopping and working out"

Near the southern border of the Park Slope neighborhood, 14th Street is not as nice as some of the lower-numbered streets closer to the main brownstoner action. That said, it also must be noted that 14th Street is in around where the area stops being full of dollar stores and starts getting real.

Harbor Fitness - a classy joint of a gym - is in the area, and trendy coffee joints keep on popping up on nearby Avenue intersections (the latest being a outpost of Crop to Cup on 4th and 14th). Residents of this street will stay fit and caffeinated, and a number of bars and restaurants are just a short walk from most doorsteps.

Aside from places where one can spend money, the main properties of 14th Street are of the residential variety. Row houses - lots of 'em. As with the rest of the neighborhood, properties closest to Prospect Park tend to be lovelier (at least from the outside) than those near the Gowanus Canal (which is famously brimming with poison).
  • Close to everything your heart wants to spend money upon
  • quiet, residential
  • area near Hamilton/4th Ave is not the prettiest
  • 4th Ave intersection traffic
