"Great vibe, lovely street"

The thing that's great about 5th Avenue in Park Slope is that there is something to do - or buy - no matter what your mood or interests have you craving. There is a lot of excellent second hand and vintage shopping to be had, and you can get everything from a surprisingly decent burger at Aperitivo's brunch for $9.95 to some first class sea bass at Al Di La.

The street itself is rather like a long shopping strip, and stays that way until you find yourself leaving the neighborhood of Park Slope. Then it becomes rather residential, and not nearly as lovely. Down in the Windsor Terrace/ Sunset Park area of the street you may not have the same amenities as you find in Park Slope, but this area is quiet and close enough to the good life to make it a great street to live on.
  • Awesome restuarant in Al Di La
  • lots of bars
  • some really awesome shops
  • noisy at night due to nightlife
  • can be difficult to find parking anywhere in the area

"5th Avenue Is Great"

This street is filled with restaurants, stores, shopping and fun. Park Slope is a fantastic neighborhood filled with so many amenities, it's hard to go far. There are plenty of housing options and places to go. I love this section of Brooklyn because it is chalked full of things to do and there are parks. It's filled with great housing as well, so this is a prime area to live if you're thinking of moving here from another part of the city. All in all, a great neighborhood.
