    "Lots of good Jamaican, Trinidadian, Haitian, and Dominican Food. We also have Thai, Sushi, and Indian. Like most Bk neighborhoods we have good Chinese spots for takeout. Labor Day Parade is a fun time but lots of potentials for gang related shootings. Neighborhood is centrally located to trains, Prospect Park, and you can easily get downtown. If only the prices would be more affordable for the people who grew up here. By design we are leaving and looking to buy elsewhere. Safety is not an issue for us, we know people here. It’s a shame we have to leave and new people come in, reading these comments to know if it’s safe. Short answer: Not really. You may not get shot or robbed but you won’t feel safe for a while until you start to know people. "

    "Prospect park offers a variety of live shows and events throughout the year, there are street fairs on Flatbush and other cultural events throughout if you keep your eyes open and ears to the ground. TONS of food options and the neighborhood is only adding more variety as the years pass. Library branches nearby and so much more! Convenient transit to NYC and the beach or Coney Island - also close to Barclays and accessible to downtown... truly a GREAT place to be."
