"Decent street in a crummy area"

I wouldn't really consider Classon as a street that runs through Williamsburg: it's more like Bed Stuy . . . which isn't good. Surprisingly, this is kind of a pretty street. There's a lot of green around here which isn't all that common in New York, in general. Unfortunately, it's somewhat of a driving street. And, being that it's in Bed Stuy, it's really not an ideal neighborhood street to live on. And, by not ideal, I mean I wouldn't live around here if you paid me to. While Williamsburg is doing a lot of trickling into Bushwick, it's not making nearly as much headway south into Bed Stuy. It's still a pretty sketchy part of town. And, there is absolutely nothing to do around here. Nothing. There's not even a good deli on Classon and isn't that one of the best parts about living in New York. I love that fact that I can walk one block in any direction and run into something to do (or eat). And, that's not the case on this street. You have to walk for a while to get to any good restaurant or even the train for that matter. Plus, it's right under the BQE which isn't picturesque or appealing. Also, like I said, it's in a really sketchy area. I would be scared to live here.
  • Fair amount of green
  • cheap rent
  • Bad neighborhood
  • Nothing to do
  • Far from transportation

"The street is ok, but there isn't anything to do."

Classon Avenue is a nice long street in a good neighborhood, and would be an excellent street if there was something to do there. If you ever find yourself on this street while you are driving around, I recommend that you head north to Myrtle Avenue, where there are tons of things to do. Overall, this is a well kept, safe street, but is in dire need of things to do.
