America's Best Secret Neighborhoods

Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, NY

Then: A residential, mostly Caribbean neighborhood that deferred the boutiques and bars to nearby Park Slope.

Now: Cool is everywhere; the Neoclassical Brooklyn Museum hosts an exhibit-themed dance party the first Saturday of every month, while more laid-back revelers sip Brooklyn Brewery beers and enjoy screened films (shown Mondays from October through April) in the plush-velvet back room at Soda.

Don’t Miss: Brunch at the 70-year-old local institution, Tom’s Restaurant, inspiration for the eponymous 1987 Suzanne Vega song, where Tom greets every customer and his staff doles out coffee and cookies while you wait.
