Although it may not come as a surprise to its residents, Prospect Heights was named by New York magazine among the top ten in its survey of most livable neighborhoods in New York City. The survey profiles fifty neighborhoods in terms of housing cost, transit, shopping, safety, restaurants, schools and diversity, among other factors. The survey found Prospect Heights particularly strong in nightlife (10th) and restaurants (17th), and fifth with respect to diversity of its residents, something most all of us would agree makes ours a great neighborhood and a great community.

In a separate article, New York also named Prospect Heights one of the ten neighborhoods on its "Where to Live in 2014" list. Jonathan Butler of Brownstoner suggests, "stick to streets not directly affected by Atlantic Yards." To which one might ask: "Which ones are those?"
