Luke Feuerherm

Prospect Park, a neighborhood best known for it’s fabled “Witch’s Hat,” has recently been named one of This Old House’s Best Old Neighborhoods of 2011.

The website recognized the neighborhood for it’s “pristine gardens” and fully restored nineteenth-century Stick Victorians and mid-20th-century bungalows.

The list includes 64 neighborhoods from across the United States and Canada.

The article also encourages readers to buy property in the neighborhood because, “Bargain homes come on the market regularly in Prospect Park, as the neighborhood’s generations cycle, but you’ll rarely find one in disrepair. Loads of century-old neighborhood pride mean you can buy a house that’s been maintained since the day it was built.”
