"Perfect Carroll Gardens Sample"

Degraw Street is a sample of why I would love to live in Carroll Gardens (at least if I were on the verge of getting married and settling down): it's calm, quiet and stunning (at least as far as Brooklyn neighborhoods go). The street is lined with beautiful brownstones, and it cuts through an interesting neighborhood and the shop-lined Court and Smith Streets.

The Street gets somewhat too close for comfort to the poisonous Gowanus Canal, and the western end takes you to the not-so-pretty Waterfront District. As long as you stay in Carroll Gardens, you will likely be envious of Degraw Street residents.

There are some downsides to living down here. For instance, the F/G trains aren't the most reliable (and in fact are often referred to as some of the city's worst examples of public transport).
Pros
  • beautiful/clean/lots of trees
  • close to a number of boutiques, mini-grocers, restaurants
Cons
  • public transport in the area can be lacking at times
  • proximity to Gowanus Canal
  • proximity to ugly Brooklyn waterfront

"Another Degraw Street"

Plenty of cheap food, but nothing really to do in the way of entertainment. I didn't like this street. It was unattractive, the people were rude, and it was very smelly. I wasn't impressed and don't think you'll see this street on any tours of New York City anytime soon. It's fairly convenient though and it is close to the metro! You'll find more in terms of conveniences, but nothing too interesting.
