An active, outdoor lifestyle awaits.
Brooklyn’s beloved Prospect Park, the borough’s own sprawling nature sanctuary, happens to be The Benny’s next-door neighbor. The park is home to must-visit attractions such as the famous Zoo, the Beaux-Arts Boathouse, and the historic carousel, built in 1912. Within a mile radius, residents can also visit the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, catch a show at the Kings Theater, or join a gym class at Blink Fitness. Here, the choices are endless.
The restaurant scene is another major plus.
Highlights include the comfort food haven Blue Bird, serving craft cocktails and sizzling burgers to locals in a laid-back setting. Around the corner on Flatbush Ave, Bergen Bagels’ lox and cream cheese makes New York’s most iconic breakfast food into a local addiction. And more new eateries are coming.
This district offers convenient access to every manner of public transportation, including multiple MTA subway lines, electric buses, and clearly marked bicycle lanes. Now, it is easier than ever to get to Manhattan, and beyond.
But you don’t need to leave your own neighborhood to enjoy major cultural attractions. The Brooklyn Museum presents ever-changing exhibitions on the works of Rembrant or Picasso in one season, and the future of fashion in another. And Prospect Park’s 52-acre Botanic Garden houses the wonders of nature beneath its white cast iron greenhouse and pavilions.
The Benny is the place to pursue your New York dreams.
