Beautiful Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, The Brooklyn Children's Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden are all approximately 20 minutes by bike or train ride. The hip world of Williamsburg is just 2 kilometers to the west, and the pleasant shopping atmosphere of Park Slope is 2 kilometers to the south.
