Two blocks from Prospect Park, amid yoga studios, boutiques, and cafés, this small one-room shop supplies the many recreational needs of its Park Slope neighbors. The walls overflow with racks of all kinds of park gear, from Frisbees to soccer balls to running shoes, along with seasonal offerings like ice skates and the backpacks to carry it all in. The athletic clothing is generally straightforward, though there are some softer, yoga-friendly pants and sweats. Sport Prospect also does a brisk business in "Brooklyn" apparel—imagine the borough title, in its ubiquitous, curvy-swooshed form, emblazoned on hoodies, tees, and onesies in an artist’s palette of colors. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, they are eager to order it, and their suppliers can usually get it to Park Slope within a few days.
