"I love life on Union!"

Union Street is one of the most lively streets in the neighborhood - especially when it comes to eating out or high-end grocery shopping. That might be a downside if you want to actually live here, but if you don't mind a little bit of a nightlife crowd and can afford to land one of the beautiful brownstones that line Union, then I think this would be a wonderful place to live.

This is where the original Union Street Market is located, as well as the neighborhood food co-op, Park Slope Food Cooperative. There are a bunch of organic restaurants on Union as well, like Rose Water and Scottadito's. I've heard great things about the latter, which is a place that serves organic Tuscan cuisine.

There is one downside: the actual street is a little traffic-heavy, but the fact that it is absolutely gorgeous makes up for the fact that you have to be on the look out for cars all the time. Union is the street that a lot of people take to get to Grand Army Plaza - a huge, highly trafficked roundabout at the end of the street - and so there is usually a long line of cars sitting at the light there.
  • unlimited supply of organic restaurants/groceries
  • Uncle Louis G's italian ice
  • backed up traffic heading to Grand Army
