"Yuck - wouldn't want to live here."

This street only receives two stars for its proximity to civilization - Park Slope, that is. If you live out here, you live under the Gowanus Expressway, which for some reason is always leaking a lot of water and ricocheting with the sounds of constant traffic. The traffic on the street below - 3rd Ave, that is - isn't much better as 3rd Ave is one of the main arteries of the area. This street is mostly commercial, and there are a lot of businesses sitting empty on it at the moment. Overall it's a dreary place, and I don't recommend it if you are simply going for a stroll.

There is perhaps one stop you need to make on 3rd Ave if you happen to live in the area (and only if you happen to live in the area), and that is Rossman Fruit and Vegetable District. They have excellent prices on fresh produce, and they have enough other products available to make a decent shopping trip out of the experience.
  • pie shop Four and Twenty Blackbirds
  • Rossman Fruit and Veggie stand
  • lies under the overpass
  • lacks any decent nightlife
  • hardly any space for parking

"On 3rd Avenue"

3rd Avenue a nice street in Brooklyn New York, located in the Park Slope neighborhood. This is one of the most popular ex-pat neighborhoods of this neighborhood for people looking for cheaper rents, but nice housing options. I like this street a lot. With schools, salons, and stores, you will be hard pressed to use the word inconvenient to describe this street. I really like this area and the people here, and think that you should consider it on a move to Brooklyn.
