Located south of Prospect Park, Flatbush is known for its diverse neighborhoods and beautiful Victorian style homes and townhouses. The houses were developed early in the twentieth century with commuters in mind; residents could travel quickly to their jobs in Manhattan on the Brighton Line (today’s B and Q trains), and return just as fast to the tree-lined comforts of suburbia.
This is an area dedicated to revitalization which is led by tight-knit community associations, recent beautification projects and commercial improvement. Flatbush Avenue is lined with shops that seem to offer just about everything. It has a natural harmony of small and large businesses in retail, professional services and restaurants.
