Van Vorst Park is another historic section in the Downtown area. This park has been maintained by The Friends of Van Vorst Park (FVVP) since 1991. The park and its gardens are the pride of the neighborhood which consists of stately brownstones and condo complexes. This is another area commonly compared to Brooklyn. The events that the FVVP sponsor are similar to those in Hamilton Park including Shakespeare in the Park, farmers markets etc.
