Litchfield Villa

95 Prospect Park W

Brooklyn, NY 11215

A 19th-century mansion hidden in prospect park, Litchfield Villa is an ornate house surrounded by a lush garden. Once condemned to be destroyed, the building was renovated in 2008 and now houses the Prospect Park Alliance offices. For fans of Italian architecture, it's definitely worth a stop.
