"Not too pretty"

Metropolitan avenue is a staple in Brooklyn. It goes on for miles and you can walk the length of it quite comfortably. There is not however, much to look at on this avenue. The buildings and shops are rather unattractive and in fact, sometimes the walk is rather dull. You will however, run into many shops and restaurants which are all great to go in and take a peek.

"Wow, major gentrification!"

Metropolitan Ave runs through Williamsburg, a neighborhood now famous for hipster artists and musicians. Once upon a time, this area was super-run down, cheap and kind of scary because of all the crime and poverty. But as these things happen, things changed with time. Now, you have tons of great restaurants and boutiques in the area. I especially like some of the design stores -- you'll find cool and unique objects, sometimes made by local artists. As cool as it is around this part of town, there are some major negatives. First off, it has become very pricy, both in terms of living here and in terms of the retail and restaurants in the neighborhood. Second, it's extraordinarily difficult to park your car around here. Which is important because third, public transit here is limited. Sure, you have the L train, which gets you to Manhatten in minutes, but you can't really go anyplace else from here. All in all, though, it's always fun to come down here for dinner/drinks and a walk around the neighborhood.

"What is up with all the trucks??"

This street woul be so much more pleasant if all the 18 wheelers weren't always using it as a bypass. Get rid of the trucks from this street and you improve the neighborhoold 10,000%!
