"Not ideal"

Beaver is a tiny little guy that merges with Bushwick after about two small blocks. It's better than any of the surrounding streets because it's kind of tucked away, but it's still not a good street. This part of the neighborhood is still pretty dangerous. And, it's really ugly. There are a lot of old factory buildings around here and a massive abandoned Pfizer factory just up the way so it looks like an abandoned industrial area except for it's not abandoned. There's nothing in the way of bars or restaurants and there's only one bodega nearby. So, there's nothing in the way of a neighborhood feel and there are no conveniences nearby. It's about a 10-15 minute walk away from the JMZ train which is a pretty good train but it's only one train option and it's not exactly a block away. And, one of the bigger housing projects is at the end of this street. Basically, what I'm saying is that it's boring, ugly and really unsafe. It may come up in the next ten years as Williamsburg continues to push east and south, but for right now, I wouldn't live here. The only plus side, really, is that the rent is really cheap and you're not a terribly far way away from fun things to do. You just have to walk through scaretown to get there.

"Not a bad street, though not highly recommended"

Beaver St is a short street that runs from Flushing Ave and merges into Bushwick Ave. Compared to the rest of the area, it's a pretty great street. However, when compared to the rest of the city it isn't much to brag about. The street boasts mostly residencies, with two bodegas and a cuchifrito place on one corner. I've one in one of the bodegas once, but never went back after learning they didn't sell cigarettes.

Bushwick Houses - one of the local low income housing projects - lies on Flushing at the end of Beaver Street. I live in close proximity to both these housing developments and the street in question and I have witnessed few acts of crime (a car being broken in to) and no acts of violence (though I heard what sounded like someone getting a bottle smashed over his head once). Tourists, obviously, have no reason to come here. And if you can afford a better apartment, you should probably take it.
