About Prospect Heights
Prospect Heights is a place where past and present mingle in dazzling harmony. The 1871 opening of Prospect Park, designed by Central Park planners Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. With 500-plus acres of natural wonder in your backyard, Prospect Park isn't the neighborhood's only landmark.
Much of the neighborhood today falls within the boundaries of its eponymous historic district, a case study in 19th-century residential architecture examples of Italianate, Neo-Grec, newer construction, and modern, amenity-laden condo and rental buildings towering skyward.

Closer to the center lies the 352,000-square-foot Brooklyn Public Library, and the 189-seat S. Stevan Dweck Center for Contemporary Culture.
