Ditmas Park is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, and is one of three Flatbush neighborhoods which have been officially designated a Historic District. Located on land that remained rural until the early 20th century, it is a suburban housing development consisting of large, free-standing Victorian homes built in the 1900s.
The Ditmas Park Association, founded in 1908, hosts social events, publishes a newsletter and a home improvement directory, and works on numerous civic issues, often jointly with its sister neighborhoods and the Flatbush Development Corporation.
The Flatbush Development Corporation hosts an annual Victorian Flatbush House Tour. It is a great way to see the interior of some of the fabulous homes in the Ditmas Park Community.
