Park Union


A Rich Past, a Vibrant Present

Park Slope is rich with history – from its first inhabitants, the Lenape Indians to its first European Dutch settlers who farmed the area in colonial times. Today it enjoys a reputation as a vibrant residential neighborhood that attracts those who are putting down roots in Park Slope for its eclectic mix of cultural attractions, exceptional residences, green spaces, and sense of community.

Known as the Gold Coast, many wealthy New Yorkers built stately Victorian mansions during the 1860s facing Prospect Park West, on 8th Avenue and along the East-West blocks running the length of Prospect Park.New York Magazine, Natural Home Magazine and the American Planning Association have all recognized it as a top neighborhood in America, and the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission recently added 600 19th and early-20th century buildings to Park Slope making its historic area larger than Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.


Grand Army Plaza
Historic Grand Army Plaza – the official entrance to Prospect Park – consisting of the famous Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch and other significant architectural landmarks -- is just steps from Park Union.

Next to the Union Square farmer’s market in Manhattan, Grand Army Plaza houses the city’s second largest open-air greenmarket. Founded in 1989, this greenmarket is a flagship destination serving Park Slope residents and surrounding neighborhoods, where hundreds of ‘grow your own’ farm vendors converge from around the tri-state region.  The greenmarket is open every Saturday throughout the year rain or shine.
