"Not for me. But maybe you?"

As a twenty-something resident of New York City (more specifically, of Brooklyn), I would never want to live this far from civilization. There is surprisingly little for a young person to do in this neighborhood, and it's a far journey to get to a neighborhood where there are things to do. That said, rent is pretty affordable out here - so if you don't mind being so far from anything remotely trendy and you don't want to pay crazy NYC rents, this is your spot.

There seem to be lots of people with cars in this area - as well as a number of driveways to park these cars, but street parking seems to be hard to come by all the same.

Besides a few Caribbean restaurants, your typical corner store fare, and the usual American fast food outposts, there isn't much going on down here that isn't residential. But properties here are somewhat affordable, and many have backyards - the holy grail of New York City (but not so uncommon in Brooklyn).
Pros
  • quiet
  • affordable
Cons
  • boring
  • far from civilization/trendy NYC
  • close to (unsafe) Brownsville
