Prospect Heights

Brooklyn’s entertainment and cultural hub

Prospect Heights is a cultural hotspot within the Brooklyn borough and proudly houses the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Garden. Fans of architecture enjoy this neighborhood’s well-curated mix of brownstones and modern luxury residences. New-world eateries blanket the streets, with many paying homage to the longstanding Caribbean-American community. Vanderbilt and Washington Avenue make up the shopping district and feature a seemingly never-ending choice of cocktail bars, popular restaurants, and artisan shops, as well as some local museums and cultural hotspots. 

One of Brooklyn’s most recognizable landmarks can be found at the edge of Prospect Heights: The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Arch at Grand Army Plaza. Besides being a popular photography spot and a way to enter Prospect Park, this archway has long been a gathering place for social justice movements and protests and pop-up events, as well as the location of the weekly Greenmarket, where local farmers and artisans sell their produce, food products, and other items.
