The Prospect Expressway is a short sunken highway in the New York Citymarker borough of Brooklynmarker, that runs southeast through Park Slopemarker and Windsor Terracemarker between the Gowanus Expressway and the north end of Ocean Parkwaymarker. The Prospect Expressway comprises one leg of New York State Route 27.

It was constructed during the 1950s, and was planned by Robert Moses. Due to the space constraints of building in an already-urbanized area, the highway stretches a little over and has an inconsistent entrance-exit scheme. There are two exits going towards Ocean Parkway: one at 10th Avenue and 19th Street, the other at Greenwood Avenue and East 5th Street; it has an entrance on 17th Street between 4th and 5th Avenues and another entrance on 19th Street and 7th Avenue. In the opposite direction, there are exits at Ocean Parkway and Fort Hamilton Parkway, 8th Avenue and 18th Street, 4th Avenue and Prospect Avenue, and Hamilton Avenue and Prospect Avenue; there are entrances at Ocean Parkway and Fort Hamilton Parkway, and at 11th Avenue and Terrace Place. The eastbound entrance to the road from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway is closed weekday mornings to facilitate traffic entering Manhattan.
