Prospect Park South runs from Parkside Avenue to the north, Coney Island Avenue to the west, Beverley Road to the south and Ocean Avenue to the east. Within the neighborhood, and comprising most of its area, is the Prospect Park South Historic District, designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1979 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. Prospect Park South offers a 35-minute commute from Manhattan from your choice of three subway stops on the Q train.
Developed in the late 1800s, Prospect Park South offers house-hunters over 206 single-family homes in an array of breathtaking architectural styles, including Victorian, Colonial, French Revival, Arts and Crafts, Queen Anne Colonial and even Spanish Mission. The neighborhood, which is zoned for one-family houses, offers rare amenities such as working fireplaces, wraparound porches and parking. Prospect Park South also has one rental building with 61 units, one 29-unit co-op and has recently added some brand new condominiums. Perhaps the most wonderful amenity of this stunning neighborhood is its proximity to magnificent Prospect Park.
Though Prospect Park South has no commercial district, nearby Cortelyou Road offers a plethora of dining, shopping and nightlife options. Kumo Sushi provides a warm, brick-walled setting for Japanese cooking with sushi bar, booth and patio seating. Purple Yam, an Asian fusion eatery offering mash-ups of Thai, Vietnamese and Filipino cuisine, offers a dynamic menu and exceptional cocktails. The Castello Plan, named after Jacques Cortelyou’s first map of Manhattan, features a selection of 130 wines, 18 beers and tasty small plates including butternut gnocchi with truffle oil, oyster mushrooms and a marinated kale and faro salad. The Zagat-rated Farm on Adderley, a casually rustic neighborhood favorite, serves a local, seasonal and organic menu in a quaint setting with reclaimed wood.
