Prospect Park, Brooklyn
You won’t be able to see that much inside the Villa itself. It is now used by the park administration. If you’d like to get information about using one of the park’s facilities this would be the right place to go. But the Litchfield villa has a pretty interesting history and the architecture is great. The history of the Prospect Park starts right there. The founder of the house named Clark Litchfield was forced to give his dream castle and surrounding 24 acres of land to the city of Brooklyn in a1868. Later the Prospect Park was built by, the designers of NYC Central Park, Olmsted and Vaux.
