Shopping

Prospect Heights is a small, laid-back residential neighborhood; its two main shopping streets, Vanderbilt and Washington Aves, have a handful of browsable shops (used books, vintage clothes, a boutique wine shop), but mostly the stores cater to residents. This goes even more so for Crown Heights's Nostrand Ave and Ditmas Park's Cortelyou Rd – although Flatbush Ave has a Gap Outlet store opposite the Kings Theatre if you're really dying for some bargains.
