"A review of 42nd Street in BROOKLYN"

Unlike the previous miscategorized review, mine is for 42nd street in Brooklyn. I absolutely adore the area around Sunset Park, and this street is no exception. All the best taquerias in the city are right along 5th Avenue nearby, and a quick jaunt takes you up to Brooklyn's Chinatown...bubble tea, fresh groceries, and delicious Dim Sum await. But what astounds me more than anything about this neighborhood is how affordable it is to live in. The cost of living itself is low, but the property, even more so. The brownstones along these blocks (in the 40s and 50s, west of 6th or 7th avenue) are absolutely beautiful, and look just like the ones in Park Slope, but cost about half as much (well, maybe I'm exaggerating, but the rent is a lot cheaper, anyway). A lot of the neighborhood residents aren't going to speak your language, but if that doesn't bother you, you'll discover an extremely warm and welcoming community.

"Lives up to the Song"

All my experiences in New York can be summed up on 42nd street. It has a little of everything the city has to offer. Right out of Grand Central head to the 42nd street exit and enjoy the sights. Home to such classics as the Chrysler Building, the New York Public Library this St is a must visit. In the summer I have enjoyed the Good Morning America concert series in Bryant Park adjacent to the library. Free shows that take place on Friday morning with popular artists taped to be shown on GMA.

"As great as everyone says it is."

Home of the great Public Library and some amazing coffee shops. I don't have anything bad to say about this place. Nice on the weekends especially if you love books and espressos. Do go here at least once if you are in the city. Don't forget to stop by the library and to grab yourself a nice warm espresso. Only negative is it is pretty crowded being one of the most popular streets in the city. 2 thumbs up.

"Do Believe the hype"

This street is as great as people say it is. It may even be better. If you really dig deep to find the culture and the contributions it has made to the aura around New York City, you will love it even more. Why not have a latte while sitting on the steps in front of the library? Or watch the parents walk by with their kids.
