Neighborhood Guide

Flatbush

With Jamaican, Caribbean, Pakistani, African-American and Latino communities, Flatbush is one of the City’s most diverse neighborhoods. Known for its busy commercial district, the area also features quaint, quiet streets lined with Victorian mansions—especially in adjacent Ditmas Park—and landmarks like the Flatbush Reformed Church, whose current building was constructed in the late 18th century. The lavish Kings Theatre, a late-1920s movie palace that was recently restored, seats more than 3,000 for its concerts and events. Stately Brooklyn College is just to the south.
