Stephan,
Park Slope is consistently rated a top neighborhood in NYC. I have lived here since 1981 and raised my kids here. As far as describing how it "looks and feels," it is a historic neighborhood of 19th century brownstone and limestone townhouses. Much of it is a designated historic district. As far as "lawns," we do have front gardens, but I would not call them lawns, as the houses are attached, but set back a bit from the street. We have backyards as well. The zip code for Park Slope is 11215. It is a neighborhood within Brooklyn, so when you ask if there is a dominant architecture "throughout the city," Park Slope is not a city, but rather a neighborhood in the borough of Brooklyn, in the city of NYC. Apart from the townhouses, there are rental, co-op and condo buildings as well.
Here a New York Magazine article rating Park Slope as the top neighborhood in NYC: http://nymag.com/realestate/neighborhoods/2010/65374/index1.html

It can happen very quickly. I lived in Park Slope for 5 years and my lease was fully executed in two days.

Been a long time since I hung proper "paper" wallpaper of the English variety. When you say Victorian, I assume English. Generally difficult to work with; you have to have an extreme amount of patience and care to hang paper wallpaper. But when you do, it looks great.

Hi Anna

That's definitely going to be a tough one as those areas fetch a pretty penny. If you are willing to live south of the park, you can find a 1 bedroom in Kensington or Ditmas Park in your price range. These neighborhoods are up and coming as many people being priced out of the more expensive areas north of the park are now migrating there. I'd be happy to assist you in your search.
Good Luck.
