Flatbush-Ditmas Park

Welcome to the trendiest neighborhood in Brooklyn. When you arrive in Flatbush, it’s pretty easy to forget all of your worries. Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood is a humble residential area. Located along the southern border of Prospect Park, this modest location represents an eclectic blend of cultures, cuisines, and architecture. The neighborhood encompasses the area from Parkside Avenue on the north to Avenue H on the south, with Coney Island and New York avenues marking its western and eastern borders. The area is its own melting pot of ethnicities, with a mix of West Indian, Russian, and Pakistani residents. Flatbush, also known as Flatbush-Ditmas Park, is home to some amazing architecture. Residential neighborhoods filled with both luxury apartment buildings and beautiful Victorian style homes, open porches and massive sycamore trees. With a recent influx of young residents and auspicious artists, Flatbush has become a neighborhood unlike any other in NYC. Flatbush-Ditmas is home to landmarks like the Flatbush Reformed Church, whose current building was constructed in the late 18th century, and The extravagant Kings Theatre, a late-1920s movie palace that was recently restored and seats more than 3,000 for its concerts and events. At the heart of the neighborhood lies Cortelyou Road, the main business district. There you can discover exclusive bars, local delis, coffee shops and upscale restaurants. Both Sycamore and The farm on Adderley are local favorites here if you’re looking for cold brew and comfort food.
