Ditmas Park – one of three neighborhoods in Flatbush to be designated Historic Districts – is an architectural high point for those with a love of Victorians and a vibrant sense of community! Once a rural farming community, Ditmas Park is now a little gem of history.
Located west of Coney Island Avenue, Ditmas Park contains gorgeous examples of buildings built between 1902 and 1914, with examples of Colonial Revival, Bungalow/Craftsman and Queen Anne style single-family homes. The tree-lined streets of this charming neighborhood offer quiet living in detached single family homes, with the commercial district is filled with delis, restaurants, live music and shopping. Local magazines and newspapers have singled out Ditmas Park for some of the best food in the area.
Suburban living in the middle of city convenience is one of the hallmarks of Ditmas Park. Big yards, quiet streets and a friendly community make this a desirable neighborhood to settle into. Commuters can access the city via express buses and the Q train; families will enjoy the top rated public schools. Prospect Park South is only a few blocks away, opening up recreation possibilities such as running and cycling.
