  • Prospect Park
    This green space puts the "park" in "Park Slope," and was designed by the same Olmsted and Vaux team behind Manhattan's Central Park. Among the park's main attractions: the Prospect Park Zoo, Brooklyn's only natural forest, the breathtaking Long Meadow, Lakeside (a year-round skating facility) and a "dog beach," where four-legged New Yorkers swim. During the summer the park is the site of Celebrate Brooklyn!, a popular series of (mostly free) outdoor concerts that brings the likes of David Byrne, Chaka Khan and Talib Kweli to Park Slope. If your interest is piqued, check out our complete guide to the park.— staff
