"Swedish Meatballs, Anyone?"

Beard Street may be close to the waterfront, but don't expect any to find any New York City treasures around here. IKEA sits right off this street, and in front of the somewhat new furniture store the street is nicely paved - which is good for IKEA shoppers, as it is advisable to at least rent a car before you head there to shop. But as soon as you pass the Swedish furniture giant, the road turns to brick. Well, mostly brick - some of the bricks seem to be missing.

The street isn't the least bit pedestrian or bike friendly, at least not until you pass Van Brunt Street - but then there is just one block left, which is the street's only residential area. Residents that live here enjoy close quarters with a rather large garden supply shop and Fairway Market - both of which are conveniently located about a block away. No doubt the rent prices include the awesome view of the NYC skyline that many of the residents of Red Hook enjoy.

This street is by all means safe during the day, but I wouldn't want to be wandering around here at night - it's just too deserted after IKEA business hours.
  • IKEA
  • waterfront views (though industrial ones)
  • needs to be paved
  • construction has closed off one of the sidewalks

"Close to the waterfront, art and museums."

Beard Street is just one block from the waterfront. It links the popular Van Brunt Street and the famous Conover Street. Artists display their wares for more than have the year along Van Brunt Street. Conover Street is for museum lovers all year long. Beard Street is close to everything you will want in downtown Brooklyn.
