About Ditmas Park & Flatbush

Built in the first decade of the 20th Century by factory owners and merchants seeking respite from Manhattan, Ditmas Park is a breathtaking historic district of Queen Anne Victorian, Colonial Revival, and Bungalow/Craftsman style homes. This is unlike any other place in the five boroughs and an area that we love, admire, and very actively represent sellers and buyers in. Part of Brooklyn’s Flatbush section, it is distinguished by its distinctive architectural heritage that is preserved by the Ditmas Park Landmark Historic District and the Fisk Terrace Historic District. Most of the homes here are free-standing, single or two family, ornate wood frame Victorians, and perched on relatively larger land parcels. This area is a true urban oasis with sidewalks lined with mature London-plane trees and wooden front porches. A longtime destination of ex-Park Slope residents, you’ll recognize the area’s main commercial strip Cortelyou Road as a hip echo of Park Slope’s 7th Avenue. It even has its own Flatbush Food Coop. Acting as a frequent movie and television set for the city’s production companies you may think you’ve arrived for Sunday dinner on Blue Bloods or walked where Meryl Streep lived after coming to America in Sophie’s Choice. The boundaries of Ditmas Park are Ocean Avenue to Coney Island Avenue, and Dorchester Road to Avenue H. We’d love to show you the beauty and value you’ll find here in a truly distinctive historic home.
