Ditmas Park is a very old Victorian neighborhood located in Brooklyn, New York. Sometimes it is called Victorian Flatbush or West Midwood. It is filled with old Sycamore trees and vines and consists of many smaller ~2 ~3 block neighborhoods such as Caton Park, Ditmas Park West, Prospect Park South, Albermarle-Kenmore Terrace, West Midwood, Fiske Terrace and e.t.c . Walking in Ditmas Park makes me feel like I am not in New York City but somewhere in the country side or a small village in Russia.
New York Magazine has an article about Ditmas Park called “Because Ditmas Park Is the New San Francisco”. (!!!!!) Indeed, one can find similarities of Ditmas Park houses, Painted Ladies of San Francisco and Russian style village houses.
