We live right near one of NYC's best parks, Prospect park, where there is so much to do and see. Zoo, carousel, le Frak center, playgrounds, etc etc. We are also right by one of the last horse stables in NYC, so kids can get pony rides for $3 on the way to the subway, it's nuts how awesome that is for a little kid!
We also have lots of great bars and restaurants nearby and the neighborhood is very walkable, while also feeling quiet and removed from the city. The best of both worlds!
We live right near by the F and G train and a short walk to the Q and B making going to the city or Coney Island or other parts of Brooklyn (like Williamsburg) and easy quick trip with no transfers on the subway .
