Erik Serras, from Ideal Properties Group, showcases three hot neighborhoods in Brooklyn.

It features restaurants, cafes, bars and shops throughout.
One of the hottest Brooklyn neighborhoods right now, Crown Heights has seen a surge in commercial and residential development in the last few years. Restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops dot the avenues, while elegant and stately brownstones and mansions have watched time unfold from their side streets. Characterized by late 19th and early 20th century mansions and brownstones coupled with an unparalleled vibrancy and energy, this booming neighborhood is growing popularity in Brooklyn.

The sprawling historic Brooklyn neighborhood known as Bedford-Stuyvesant (popularly Bed-Stuy), is located in central Brooklyn and borders with Williamsburg and Bushwick. It features rows of pristine brownstones, and local attractions including Bar Lunatico, Unwine, Bedford Hall and Bedford Hill Coffee Bar.

Prospect Heights, adjacent to Park Slope, exemplifies what Brooklyn means. This petite neighborhood, also known as Brooklyn's answer to Manhattan's Museum Mile, is home to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and the enormous central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. The neighborhood is home to some of the best restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques that evince a distinctly "come as you are" Brooklyn vibe. The neighborhood is situated at the entrance of Prospect Park, along with the 2, 3, Q and B subway lines.
