"Long Island University, Applebee's and construction"

Hudson Avenue is a tine street that is basically a sum of the things that surround it: An applebee's and a subway stop to the west, a large construction site to the east, and Long Island university to the north. There are no apartments there currently, only the long walls of large buildings. There is minimal traffic down this street as well, though you do have to be careful of the occasional car, especially when you cross this street at night.

"Tiny street to the south of Atlantic Center -- not much going on"

S Elliot turns off into this street, which runs around one side of the Atlantic center. Apart from the Atlantic Center and a few large apartment buildings, there is nothing much going on at this street. Very industrial and un-welcoming. Because it is so close to the incredibly traffic-heavy Atlantic Ave, there is also a ton of street noise here.

"Industrial and full of construction"

Rockwell Place is home at the moment to a very large construction site at Dekalb. They do work during the day, complete with a towering crane. The rest of the street is large, industrial type buildings. Not much of the neighborhoody feel of the other surrounding streets in Ft Greene.

There are some notable companies along Rockwell though, such as the Brooklyn Glassworks and Rockwell’s Bar & Lounge, which is a long and narrow bar that is very chic-looking, though I often see them playing sports on their large TVs.

"Nondescript brick apartment buildings, heavy traffic, Empire State Building views, lacks character"

Ashland Place and Dekalb is a major intersection and Ashland itself is a very traffic-heavy street -- people fly down this street very fast.

If you look out to the west, you can see an unencumbered view of the Empire State building. There is a bodega at Dekalb and Ashland, and a number of brick apartment buildings. It is not one of the prettier streets in Fort Greene. It is very close to the express trains at Dekalb Avenue however.

Farther down Ashland to Lafayette you'll find the high-rise Forte condos, which are near the Crunch gym and a few blocks away from some great restaurants. Past Forte, there's a parking lot and then the famous "Clock Tower" building, which used to be a bank, but is now also a large condo building.

While this street may be full of luxury buildings, it lacks character, charm, and isn't very pretty or green.

"Central Location, beautiful brownstones, Spike Lee"

S Elliott place is nearby many trains (R,M,B,Q and C,G), close to Fort Greene Park, and home to the location of Forty Acres and a Mule, Spike Lee's filmworks. The brownstones are picturesque, and the street is clean.

S Elliot runs past many restaurants like the Smoke Joint, 67 Burger, a greek diner and several food markets. There is a wonderful natural bath and body store called Carol's Daughter at S Elliott and Dekalb, made famous by Oprah. The north side of Brooklyn Tech is also on South Elliott, so there is some spill-over from the students, but less so than Ft Greene Pl.

"Street bustling with high schoolers, lined with pretty apartments"

This short little street runs from Dekalb down to Atlantic. Most notably, it starts with Brooklyn Tech High School at Dekalb ave. This makes for very noisy, crowded early mornings and afternoons during the school year, as throngs of high school students flow in for their classes.

Apart from the school, there are many cute little brick and brownstone buildings along Ft Green Place, and it ends down by the Atlantic Center, for great access to shopping at Modell's, Target, Victoria's Secret, Daffy's and others. There's also a cute boutique called Cloth at Ft Greene Pl between Lafayette and Hanson.
