Flatbush - Ditmas Park

Eclectic Culture and Quaint Victorian Mansions
Flatbush is a larger neighborhood in central Brooklyn comprised of several smaller areas, including Ditmas Park. A diverse mix of communities populate the neighborhood, resulting in an amazing combination of Jamaican, Caribbean, Pakistani, African-American, and Latino eateries, especially along Cortelyou Road. The Flatbush Reformed Church and the magnificent Kings Theatre are landmarks you can't miss. In addition, Ditmas Park is one of the officially designated Historic Districts, and it has a more suburban feel with its low crime rates, strong public schools, and quiet streets.

While Ditmas Park is famous for its picturesque freestanding Victorian homes, other options for rent in Flatbush include brick townhouses and mid-rise apartments. Families, artists, and professionals enjoy the nearby green spaces such as Prospect Park. The neighborhood's subway access is hard to beat, making a commute to the rest of Brooklyn or Manhattan easily accessible.

Flatbush - Ditmas Park — 6/10 Rating (based on 4 neighborhood reviews)
Kensington is an up-and-coming neighborhood in Brooklyn that has seen an influx of young families, restaurants and bars, and other services in the past few years. The North edge is very close to Prospect Park and the F and G lines are close by. Though the commute to Stern can be long (45 min on average), it's good for people who want to get away from the buzz of Manhattan or downtown Brooklyn. There's a bit of a suburb feel, but with everything you need nearby. The main street (Church Ave) has a wide array of West Indian, Polish, Bangladeshi, and Hispanic restaurants and businesses — and more and different ones are opening up every month. Definitely a neighborhood for those who don't mind trading some conveniences of the big city for very affordable rents and lots of space.

Commute to Stern is about an hour, which is not fun for 9AM classes. However, it is quiet, family friendly, and filled with some beautiful multi-family homes. Cortelyou Road has some cute little restaurants. Pretty cheap rents. Big grocery stores, outlet shopping, and a big 24 Hour Fitness.

Very nice, picturesque area. Unfortunately, gentrifiers are moving and ruining the charm and culture of the neighborhood. Reliable neighborhood businesses are being closed down in favor of trendy cafes and restaurants that never seem to last for more than a year.

It's a nice, safe place to walk, especially at night, where the most you'll see outside are a few stray cats.

My advice: if you're moving here, move here to enjoy the neighborhood as it is, and not for what you think you can make it into.
