Prospect Park's 28 Best Places, According to Curbed Readers

New, 14 comments


Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert B. Vaux created their masterpiece, Prospect Park, nearly 150 years ago, and to this day, it's one of the most beloved places in Brooklyn. The history of the 585-acre green space is documented in a new monograph, aptly titled Prospect Park, and the book reveals dozens of little-known facts and sheds light on lesser traveled corners of the park. In our giveaway of the book, we asked Curbed readers to send us photos of their favorite places in the park, and more than thirty people sent submissions, most of which are included in the gallery above (to avoid any copyright issues, we only published those that were taken by the person who sent them). The winning photograph captures an über lush Vale of Cashmere, a little-known garden oasis not far from the park's main entrance.
