"Beautiful busy area"

While parts of this Fort Greene Avenue are quieter (the ones further away from the subway of course), most of this avenue is pleasantly bustling without the grime and chaos of other busy areas. The houses are big and well kept along the entire Avenue and it is within walking distance to many universities and Downtown Brooklyn. This would be a great Avenue to have the space and quiet of Brooklyn but the proximity to urban life, if you can afford it.

"A nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there"

Unless it is the day of the Mermaid Parade or the hot dog eating contest this avenue is a lot quieter than other main drags in Coney Island but it still has all of the sagging architecture and high crime of the rest of the area. There has been a lot of back and forth about the closing of Astro Land and the opening of an indoor theme park and condos, so you could take a chance that buildings on this Avenue will get a face lift and more interesting businesses will pop up, as it is right now, this Avenue is pretty bleak.

"In the thick of Park Slope"

I viewed an apartment on St. Mark's Place and was very sad when I did not get it because I fell in love with the area. This short little street has all of my favorite parts of park slope. The brownstones that dot it have a lot more character than neighboring blocks and it is within walking distance to the busy Atlantic/Pacific transit hub while being tucked away enough to feel safe and neighborly.

"Busy in Park Slope, Relaxing in Fort Greene"

Near Flatbush Ave this is a busy Ave safe to walk home at night, close to bars, shops and the B, Q subway. Closer to the BQE and DeKalb Ave there are parks and more row houses than apartments. Steer clear of the Atlantic Ave area because although it is near the Atlantic/Pacific hub it is gross and deserted.

"Tree lined one way street"

Eleventh Street runs from the lofts and warehouses of Gowonas to Prospect Park West. The West Side of Prospect Park is one of the safer parts of the park to live near and although the street gets parked up quickly, it is very accessible by car, subway or walking. I think this street is a good compromise in distance between the F train along 9th Street and the bars and restaurants of the 5th Ave/5th St area without the noise of either.

"Good for hipsters who like it a little more mellow"

I have been to this street to visit Cafe Grumpy. I was living in Manhattan at the time and happy to have a quiet Sunday in a less crowded neighborhood. If you live close to Manhattan Ave you will find it busier and easier to step out of your apartment right into a restaurant or bar. Even a few blocks away from these Avenues it is a lot quieter but still dotted with interesting cafes and shops. If you want something lush and dotted with trees, this street is not for you. Think pavement.
