About Flatlands Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Flatlands is a secluded neighborhood located in southeastern Brooklyn, between Canarsie and Midwood. Due to its isolation from the subway lines, commuters must take a bus in order to get to the subway, which then takes about an hour to get to Manhattan. Because of this, daily commuters are deterred from living here. The community is mostly comprised of low-rise homes with lawns on tree-lines streets. The Kings Plaza Shopping Center is a popular shopping destination. The people living here are culturally diverse with many West Indian and Caribbean immigrants. Because Flatlands was one of the original Dutch towns that comprised Brooklyn, there are many historical buildings and structures including the Hendrick l Lott House, which was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
