"The center of the center"

Stuyvesant Oval is a walkable oval at the center of the Stuy Town housing complex. There are apartment buildings surrounding the oval and though there's a lot more foot traffic milling about outside those buildings, there's also no street traffic and it's, obviously, more centrally located and protected I guess. And, it's very green right here so the buildings surrounding the oval would probably be my first choice if I were looking for a place here.
The oval also holds a rec center with a pool table, wifi, a tv and couches. They have wine tastings there and residents can use it to have parties. The Stuy Town gym is also at the oval as is, I believe, the parking structure and the rental office. There's a lot going on right here but it's definitely quieter than being street side.
The apartments are really nice and a one bedroom around the oval is about $3300 / month. It's steep but there are a lot of amenities and these are some of the biggest apartments I've seen in apartment remotely close to this price range.
  • Huge apartments
  • Quiet
  • Green
  • No neighborhood vibe
