"Not ideal by any stretch"

Richardson street is one of the more lackluster streets in Williamsburg. It's a bit of a ways away from the train and there's nothing really to do or look at on this street. There aren't really any bars or restaurants and the apartments manage, somehow, to be even uglier than standard Williamsburg living spaces. I remember walking to a bar on Richardson in the middle of the day on a Sunday and I was a little creeped out. The bar was really cool in a divey sort of way. But, the walk there was like walking through an indusrtrial wasteland. And, because part of Richardson is right under the BQE, there's a lot of traffic and it's really loud. But, weirdly, it seems abandoned despite all of the cars. It's a really ugly street with nothing to do. There's one restaurant on it, that I do like that's really close to the Bedford Stop of the L train, and it deserves a shout out:
The restaurant Beco is a Brazilian joint, but I love them for their brunch. The place is definitely a hipster joint but it still has a cool vibe and a pretty awesome acai and granola bar (which, I know, is weird for a Brazilian joint).
That's pretty much the only thing to do on the whole street (unless you like throwing things at passing cars). The rent is a bit cheaper on streets like Richardson but I don't think it's worth living that close to the BQE in no man's land just to save a few bucks.
  • Slightly cheaper rent
  • Dirty
  • Loud
  • Scary at night

"This is a street in wiliamsburg that is next to the park. It is okay."

I have never lived on Richardson Street. I lived on a street nearby. I used to walk my dog down this street a lot on the way to the park. Some parts of the street are pretty and some are ugly, depending on which side of the freeway you are on.
