    We found a kick ass apartment about half a block away from Prospect Park. Should have that lined up tomorrow.

    Anyone have any good recommendations for where to eat around there? How about bars?

    Parts of the neighborhood seem really sketchy, but we're super excited to start exploring.

    Prospect Park is really big, so I don't know which side you're on. Here are some good spots in Park Slope.

    Connecticut Muffin is a popular coffeehouse; there's one on Prospect Park West at Bartel Pritchard Square and another one on 7th Avenue.at 1st Street.

    There are lots of hot places along 5th Avenue and 7th Avenue.

    Yamato is a good, inexpensive pan-Asian place on 7th at 1st Street. It was originally a Japanese place but the menu has shifted. Kiku on 5th Avenue is a good Japanese place. Hunan Delight at 6th Avenue and Union Street isn't bad for Chinese.

    Bogota is a great pan-Latin place on 5th Avenue at St. Mark's. The drinks are meh (though cheap) but the food is pretty good and the place is always hopping. They often have live music and there's seating out back in good weather. It's owned by a gay couple.

    Cocoa Bar is a nice bakery/coffeehouse on 7th Avenue.

    La Villa is some really great Italian on 5th Avenue at Garfield.

    I've heard lots of good things about Moutarde on 5th Avenue at Carroll, but I haven't been.

    Welcome to the neighborhood where gentrified stuck up 30 year old white bitches with baby strollers are gradually taking over church-going car-fixing throws-the-F-word-in-every-sentence Black folk. I'm not sure which is more annoying but either way none of them are attractive to me.

    Oh, what part are you in btw? There's a lot of good restaurants but depends on what streets you live in. There's a lot of douche bag bars filled with 30 somethings. It's very "chill" and "non-scene."
