"Great block in a diverse and welcoming neighborhood"
I wouldn't say that 32nd st. is the prettiest street in the neighborhood, but it has a lot to recommend it. The express subway station is just 4 blocks away, at 36th st. and 4th avenue, and there is post office just down the street on 3rd Avenue. Green-Wood Cemetery cuts the street off at 5th Avenue, which, unless you're superstitious, is a good thing--it's a beautifully landscaped forest of a place, and generally just gives you the atmosphere of living near a park. Speaking of parks, it's just a quick walk to Sunset Park, which is a great place during the warmer months or anytime. Pick up a taco from one of the nearby Mexican restaurants and lounge on the hill or fly a kite...either way it's a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. There are also a couple of bars nearby right along 4th, including Brooklyn's Tiki Bar, which is a standard neighborhood place but pretty fun.
