This is a list of places that make Prospect Heights Prospect Heights. Not spots you ought to go out of your way for so much as appreciate if you're often in the neighborhood.
1. Prospect Park Loop
Christen Duong: Having this track nearby makes me want to get on my bike and ride, around and around!
2. Kings Pharmacy
Christen Duong: This is one of those old school pharmacies where you can find that random thing you can't find anywhere else
Christen Duong: It's warm, comforting, eggy, rich, in the neighborhood, and never a long wait - everything a ramen joint should be.
4. BKLYN Larder
Christen Duong: For when you feel like a special meal, or are entertaining friends, or want a really good cookie - it's great to have this spot a 5 min walk away.
5. 606 R&D
Christen Duong: 606 symbolizes what I love about Prospect Heights - there are great new places opening up here all the time. Try donuts + french press coffee ftw!
6. Ca$h for Gold
Christen Duong: When this place goes, so goes the neighborhood.
7. Celebrate Brooklyn!/Prospect Park Bandshell
Christen Duong: It's a treat to live near here during the summertime when there's always great concerts.
8. Glass Shop
Christen Duong: So this is technically in Crown Heights, but one should always have stretch goals to push their boundaries. This is the coffee I bike to.
9. Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Christen Duong: Beautiful gardens year-round. No one deserves to have this in their neighborhood. This place makes me feel lucky to live around here.
10. Weather Up
Christen Duong: It's like stepping into another world.
11. The Usual
Christen Duong: The Usual is where you go if you live around here and don't have to take a visiting friend to Tom's. Really laid-back, regulars vibe and nice fluffy pancakes to boot.
12. Brooklyn Cycle Works
Christen Duong: They can be surly or they can be sweet. I'm mostly glad that they're close by and canusuallyfixit.
13. Bergen Bagels
Christen Duong: Salmon lox. Call ahead and save yourself a wait.
14. Unnameable Books
Christen Duong: Really good curation of books here. Check out the used books for a nice impulse even though you own a kindle purchase.
15. Tofu on 7th
Christen Duong: My old reliable Chinese takeout place - really great veggies to make you feel a little bit better about not cooking.
16. El Gran Castillo de Jagua
Christen Duong: Don't know what's for dinner and feeling carnivorous? Come round - this menu won't disappoint! Rotisserie chicken, beef stew, pig knuckle, you name it!
17. Antonio's Pizzeria
David Blackman: Best slice joint I've been to in years. Try the grandma square.
18. Professional Italian Shoe Repair
Christen Duong: They cobble things. If you know what the means, this is a good place for you.
19. Taro Sushi
Christen Duong: It's cheap, it's good, and it's never too much of a wait. Come a few times and the waitstaff will remember you.
20. Amorina Cucina Rustica
Christen Duong: The epitome of a homey neighborhood Italian joint. The specials are always a good call.
21. Bombay Masala
Christen Duong: One of the few Indian places around NYC that does seafood well - try the shrimp bhuna, or go all in on the seafood special dinner!
22. Oceans 8 at Brownstone Billiards
Christen Duong: Where arcade basketball lives on forever
23. Brooklyn Crepe & Juice
Jorene René: There's a type of crepe per Brooklyn neighborhood, and a map on the wall in case you're unsure of your whereabouts.
24. Fleishers Craft Butchery
Christen Duong: It's a little bit fancy, but it's meat you'll feel good about chowing down.
25. Ocean Fish Market

26. Hungry Ghost
Joshua Nguyen: Staff is super chill and friendly, ESP the guy and gal barista there on the weekdays.
27. Convivium Osteria
Maria Pecoraro: If you're a meat lover, the steak (for Two) is fantastic. Also try the artichoke app - yum.
