One of New York’s most iconic landmarks is Central Park, but what most visitors don’t realize is that Central Park has slightly younger, slightly smaller, but equally as impressive brother in Brooklyn known as Prospect Park. Built in 1867, Prospect Park covers 585 acres of North Brooklyn. The highlights of Prospect Park include a 90 acre meadow, a 60 acre lake (the only lake in Brooklyn), a picnic house, a zoo, a cemetary, a concert venue, and plenty of athletic fields.
