Chabad Park Slope

Park Slope, a farming area in the late 1800’s became a bedroom community for the middle class-mostly, Irish and Italian when the subway made its way into the area. It was a bucolic suburban setting. It went downward into rooming houses and the Brownstone revival began in the late 1960’s with revival of the original homes and was declared a National Historic landmark in 1973. Home to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library nearby and the Brooklyn Museum it is now a much desired real estate driven community of restored homes, lovely shops and galleries.
