"17th Street, Brooklyn, New York"

I lived on 17th street between 5th and 6th Avenues. Its a mix of apartment buildings, two and three family homes, most of which have backyards. There is a small park with swings close to 6th Ave. Fifth Ave. has plenty of bars, restaurants, and shopping opportunities. Lenny's Pizza has genuine Brooklyn pizza and is open into the wee hours of the night. Eagle Provisions is a Polish grocery, with a large selection of Eastern European beers, and a great produce and food selection. Buttermilk on Fifth is a terrific neighborhood bar. The biggest drawback is the entry ramp to the Prospect Expressway located between 4th and 5th Aves. and the general proximity to the Expressway.

NeverSleeps I'm not that crazy about Lenny's - Cotta-Bene is way better, way up on 3rd but they deliver - but the beer selection at Eagle is awesome, and totally agree about the unfortunate location of the Prospect Expressway entry ramp....
