For walkers, joggers, and cyclists, Prospect Park will soon be a completely car-free refuge. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Monday that the park will permanently become car-free, beginning January 2, 2018. Currently, Prospect Park’s East Drive is still open to cars during morning rush hour.

Prospect Park previously went car-free this past summer. From July to September, cars were not allowed to cut through via the park’s East Drive as part of a pilot program, forcing those who use the road during morning rush hour to find another route. The car-free summer saw “enormous” support from those who use the park recreationally, according to DOT, especially since walkers, joggers, and cyclists outnumber cars more than 3 to 1 in the mornings.

On Election Day, the winners go on to live their political dreams while the losers are largely forgotten—until now. A new art installation from Nina Katchadourian called Monument to the Unelected has taken over the lawn of Prospect Park’s Lefferts Historic House with 58 campaign signs for all the losing presidential candidates from every election in American history. And, yes, after Tuesday, November 8th, there will be 59. Monument to the Unelected only be on display through November 13.

On a quiet block of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens–lined with similar round-fronted row houses and low-rise brick apartments–this thoughtfully-renovated, 20-foot-wide limestone townhouse is move-in ready, no contractor required. Asking $1.95 million, 176 Lefferts Avenue changed hands in 2014 for $1.6 million, and just before that in 2013 for $830,000 to a local developer–so you can see how much property values in this neighborhood have changed in recent years. Though the home has been renovated for use as a one-family, it’s legally a two-family if you wanted to take advantage of the income–or other expansion–potential.
