"Surprisingly easy to transverse Prospect Park"

Rush hour will set you back about half an hour on the Prospect Expressway - at least in the morning, headed west toward the BQE. The after-work crowd doesn't clog up the expressway as bad heading east in the evenings, but it can get a little traffic-y around then. Other than during rush hour, the Prospect Expressway stays pretty empty (as far as NYC highways are concerned), and I actually enjoy a cab ride over the park much more than I enjoy the crazy ride up the BQE to Williamsburg, which is never a quiet ride.

Just keep in mind that when I say there's not much traffic, I'm using the rest of the city as a scaled comparison!
  • Easy acess to neighborhoods on opposite sides of Prospect Park
  • expect rush hour traffic (duh)
