Prospect Lefferts Gardens

Often overlooked compared to neighboring Crown Heights, the charm of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens.

Welcome to Prospect-Lefferts Gardens

Often overlooked compared to neighboring Crown Heights, the charm of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens (PLG) lies in its vibrant and energetic residents, blend of families and professionals, and proximity to a lively side of Prospect Park. It's a neighborhood where people move in and end up staying longer than they expected. At first, it might seem isolated, but spend some time there and you might fall in love with its slow-burning charm.
 
PLG features landmarked 18th and 19th-century homes on its streets, as well as many new developments with modern rental and condo units and a range of amenities. Despite rapidly rising home prices, PLG remains a high-value option compared to neighboring Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy. With reliable 2 and 5 trains, the commute to Lower Manhattan is roughly 30 minutes, which is dependable by New York standards.
 
The revitalization of Flatbush Ave, with new residential homes and increased rental demand, has brought a growth in dining and nightlife options in recent years. The neighborhood's West-African and Caribbean influence continues to shape its beautiful boutique shops. What was once a secondary option for renters has now become a highly sought-after neighborhood for its convenience and desirability.
