"Long Island University, Applebee's and construction"
"Tiny street to the south of Atlantic Center -- not much going on"
"Industrial and full of construction"
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"
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 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"
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.
