The Flatbush-Ditmas Park neighborhood of New York City's borough of Brooklyn sits on the south end of Prospect Park and west of the East Flatbush neighborhood. The neighborhood consists mostly of working- and middle-class families, young professionals and students attending Brooklyn College.
The neighborhood attracts many families because of the gorgeous, very large and brightly-colored Victorian-style homes that decorate the streets. The other reason people have been moving into this neighborhood stands to be the close proximity to Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn, where many work and attend school.
The residential neighborhood also provides a wide variety of restaurants and bars, as well as good schools and great places to go for entertainment in and around Flatbush-Ditmas Park. With a close proximity to the water and parks as well as major roadways, the neighborhood also has plenty of transportation options.
