Though the neighborhood may be lovely and its amenities many, it’s not for nothing that Park Slope is known as “no place to park Slope.” This gracious 23.5-foot-wide four-story home at 559 1st Street, asking $4,995 million, is in a prime spot right on the park; even better, deeded parking is available for trade with the sale. The two-family home is being used as a single-family townhouse, but the opportunity for rental income exists if the new owner wants to change the configuration.

Along the hip “main drag” in the heart of Park Slope, this charming co-op at 285 Fifth Avenue is priced like a studio, asking $400,000, but a separate internal sleeping area keeps the one-room-living blues at bay. What’s more, monthly maintenance is only $290, so your monthly outlay won’t overwhelm, even in this pricey, though heavenly neighborhood.

This one-bedroom, pre-war co-op at 19 7th Avenue is just one flight up from a classic north Park Slope street. Asking $499,000, it has the proper postcard charm of a lovely landmarked brownstone–working fireplace included–and it’s just a few blocks from Prospect Park.

As one of the highly sought-after, elegant pre-war Park Slope co-ops that overlook Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza, 47 Plaza Street West was built in 1928 and designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela. Asking $2.4 million, this “classic seven” unit is one of only two that share an elevator bank. And with four bedrooms and a unique corner configuration, the gracious apartment feels like a townhouse–without all the stairs. Plus, high-floor status means gorgeous views of Grand Army Plaza and the park below.

New York is a prime spot for holiday shopping, in large part because of big department stores like Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, designer flagships that line the Upper East Side, and whatever hell awaits you in the Disney Store in Times Square. But true New Yorkers should avoid the major shopping hubs, and instead seek gifts and other goods in some of the city’s slightly less crowded and infinitely more interesting ‘hoods, including the many holiday markets and pop-up shops found across the five boroughs. Find our favorite neighborhoods for holiday shopping this season, ahead.

Our series “My sqft” checks out the homes of New Yorkers across all the boroughs. Our latest interior adventure brings us to the Park Slope apartment of digital marketing strategist and sustainability advocate Natalie Skoblow. Want to see your home featured here? Get in touch!

Many New Yorkers fill their apartments with second-hand goods for that vintage aesthetic or because it’s affordable. But Long Island-native Natalie Skoblow thrifts because it also benefits the environment. “From the clothes in my closet to the photos on the wall, almost everything in our apartment is either locally made, thrifted, or sustainably made,” Natalie told us on a recent tour of her Park Slope apartment. What began as a hobby in high school became a “full-fledged love affair” with supporting sustainable, ethical brands. From the books found on the sidewalks of her neighborhood to the antique maps of Brooklyn above the piano, Natalie and her boyfriend Jesse’s apartment brings new life into old pieces. Ahead, meet Natalie, along with the couple’s newly adopted puppy Ollie, and tour her apartment, which she describes as “playful, vibrant, and welcoming.”

31 prospect park west, cool listings, park slope, townhouses

Starting with a semi-private driveway and private garage, the attractive if unassuming neo-Federal townhouse at 31 Prospect Park West, built in 1919 by Brooklyn architect W. J. McCarthy, has just about every luxury you could imagine under its roof, and 600 square feet of irrigated, landscaped terrace on the actual rooftop. Recently given a truly spare-nothing renovation by local design duo Delson or Sherman Architects, this townhouse is already blessed with a prime Park Slope location across from Prospect Park. Asking $5.895 million, the home packs perks that include a fully-stocked gym and sauna to a wet bar and dual gas and wood-burning fireplace into its 2,800+ square feet of interior space. And that’s without the fountain in the backyard.

As of today, the MTA has added four express trains to the F line during morning and evening rush hours. Two F trains will run express between the Church Avenue and Jay Street-MetroTech stations, stopping only at Seventh Avenue, during the morning and evening rush hours. Additionally, two Manhattan-bound trains will run express from Church Avenue between 7 and 7:30 a.m. and two Coney Island-bound trains will run the express route between 5 and 5:40 p.m. Previously, as the Daily News reports, the F train’s route was the longest in the whole subway system without an express option.
