"One of the quieter sides of Park Slope"
8th Ave is nowhere near the commercially trendy hub that is 5th Ave - or even 7th Ave - in the Slope, but there are a few brunch spots and tattoo shops and what have you on this street. More importantly, this street offers quiet apartments/brownstones away from the noise of the barhopping areas of this neighborhood. And more than that, it is another beautiful Park Slope avenue. So, if you are looking for a street that is close and yet removed from all of the action, you are likely to love Brooklyn's 8th Ave - at least the Park Slope version of the street.
