South Slope Diversity| New York Moments

Park Slope; Brooklyn; New York; boundaries extend from Prospect Park West to Fourth Avenue and from Flatbush Avenue to 15th Street. What is now "Park Slope's Fourth Avenue" is undergoing a transformation; that is leaving many observers breathless. Largely neglected by residential developers until 2003; when the City Planning Commission rezoned the area the 29 block stretch of this six-lane corridor between Atlantic Avenue and Fifteenth Street is experiencing new development at a dizzying pace. Though most new construction focuses on high-rise condominiums of up to 12 stories, a variety of office buildings stores and a nine-story boutique hotel are becoming permanent fixtures along the Avenue as well. The Fourth Avenue corridor in Park Slope has rightly been called one of the hottest real estate markets in the city with some enthusiasts even proclaiming it "The future Park Avenue of Brooklyn." On one hand many locals welcome construction of new apartments and the arrival of new businesses to the neighborhood. Yet others fear that the preservation of the low-rise character of the neighborhood has been disregarded with many low-income residents being pushed out of the area by well-off professionals moving to Fourth Avenue from other areas of Brooklyn Manhattan and beyond.
