Just southeast of Prospect Park is the affordable and accessible (via the 2 and 5 trains) neighborhood of East Flatbush. This area is primarily residential, providing some relief from the frenzy of nearby neighborhoods, and you can take a casual westward stroll toward Flatbush to go out for a nice meal or grab a drink. The neighborhood is also incredibly diverse and has a strong Afro-Caribbean influence, allowing you to find some great hole in the wall spots for authentic fare. Key institutions in the area include the Holy Cross Cemetery, Kings County Hospital, and SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
