About half an hour from Midtown on the Q line, Ditmas Park is a small town haven in New York City. Century-old Victorian mansions and tree-lined streets define Ditmas Park, which was originally farmland but soon became a neighborhood for the wealthy. After its millionaire residents moved elsewhere, Ditmas Park became a quiet, almost boring landmarked neighborhood. Today, its houses consistently sell for over a million dollars and the area’s business district, Cortelyou Road, has become a notable food destination. Co-op market activity has increased significantly, with young professionals and families moving into the prewar buildings concentrated south of Cortelyou. Although Ditmas Park’s nightlife is sedated, residents are still social and can be seen at the farmers’ market and playground. The area has high-performing public schools and its proximity to Prospect Park establishes a scenic atmosphere. For those looking for a close-knit community and a place to call home in the city, Ditmas Park is the ideal destination.
