"A street that improves as you near Prospect Park"

There are only two blocks on 15th Street that rate less-than-average - those between Hamilton Place and 3rd Ave. Those blocks are super industrial and crammed with city vehicles (ie, ambulances and street sweeping trucks), as this is where their maintenance garages are located. The rest of 15th Street perks up the closer you get to Prospect Park. Little markets and delis pop up where the street intersects with the neighborhood avenues, but for the most part 15th Street is lined with row houses and shiny new condos (which are either still under construction or standing mostly empty, having just been completed).

Harbor Fitness is here, and at 6th Ave the street hits a beautiful community garden, complete with tomatoes residents can freely pick, a weeping willow and tiny fish pond.
  • Close to Prospect Park
  • Community Garden at 6th Ave
  • Home to an awesome gym, Harbor Fitness
  • Rent can be on the expensive side
  • Little parking to be found

"On 15th Street"

This street is near the beautiful Prospect Park in Brooklyn, known for its wonderful outdoor concerts and year-long events. Prospect Park, similar to Central Park, seems to be the heartbeat of Brooklyn, and the place for city dwellers to enjoy some nature. The street itself is very convenient, housing restaurants, shops, housing, and service-oriented businesses. All in all, this is a nice street in a nice neighborhood in Brooklyn.

"Beautiful street a walk from Prospect Park"

If you're lucky enough to get into one of these beautiful brownstones, you will never regret it. While it's a little expensive to get one, unless you luck into a deal, the proximity of Prospect Park and the Circle means you won't be crying over it. The movie theatre on the corner has started to jump, and you can no longer get tickets there five minutes before the show, but at least now there'll be a good crowd-and for such a small-from-the-outside place, there are always a lot of shows playing. The corner groceries also are friendly, with character-little kittens peek out from under the dry goods and also assure you that the place is clean. While parking is certainly at a premium, you can always find it by going one or two blocks over, and the subway is right on the corner of the circle, as is a late-night muffin shop. You can't beat this!
