"A handy street"

We stayed in 16th Street for a few weeks in 2013 and it's a quintessential Brooklyn street. Good points are close to Prospect Av subway and a great Mexican on the corner of 4th Ave. Not great is the house at No 88 which looks like some sort of drug rehab facility but no one actually gave us any grief while we were there.
Pros
  • Mexican Food
  • Subway
