"Residential spot in a friendly neighborhood"

The scene down around 23rd Street isn't trendy-cool - it's not Meatpacking, it's not even Williamsburg, not even close - but there are some awesomely friendly bars in the area. You know, of the everybody-knows-your-name variety. (718 comes to mind, but there is no shortage of beer houses on 5th Ave.)

I lived in the area for a while, and bartenders weren't the only ones who remembered my name - the guys at my corner store and local coffee shop really knew how to run a friendly business as well. The neighborhood was really welcoming, and there are few neighborhoods left in Brooklyn like it.

If you live on 23rd Street, you're only really close to the action if you live near 5th or 7th Aves - otherwise the street is pretty quiet and very residential. It's not all that cute, to be honest. Lower numbered streets in the neighboring Park Slope area are lined with beautiful brownstones, but down here what you get is a lot of aluminum-sided row houses with the occasional brick one thrown in the mix. But the streets tend to be clean, and it's an affordable area and just a short walk from some decent restaurants and shops in Park Slope.

  • Close to Park Slope
  • Not the greatest grocery store options (not counting Rossman's produce stand)
  • Bland as far as Brooklyn goes
  • Busy intersection at 4th Ave

"Dead area but nice living."

The street is rather sad. The street runs mostly along a cemetery so it seems rather morbid. The area is very green and clean though. The houses are beautiful and are normally about 2 or 3 bedrooms. There are a few bigger business factories down the street and a few restaurants also, but for the most part it is just a quiet neighborhood next to the graveyard. A great place for those who just wish to sit back and relax. Not really the place for the elderly to see their future.
