"Good bet for a quiet apartment in Park Slope"
6th Ave is a surprisingly residential street between two rather commercial outposts (ie, 5th & 6th Aves) in Park Slope. It's also a surprisingly gorgeous street - the Park Slope area is lined with brownstones and trees and the residents have been known to keep little gardens in their little front lawns. Naturally the street has amenities typical of any New York neighborhood - the laundromat, the deli, the preschool. 6th Ave in Park Slope is one of the more quiet avenues in the area. 3rd Ave is too industrial and congested, 4th Ave doesn't have a whole lot going on except traffic, 5th Ave is packed with bars/shops/restaurants and general nightlife, making it incredibly noisy at night, and 7th Ave is somewhere in between the quiet residential attitude of 6th Ave and the busy nightlife on 5th. Anyway, my point is that if you want to live in this area to enjoy all that it has to offer but still live on a quiet street, this is one of your best bets!
