"Absolutely stunning street"

Sure, you'll never find a parking space on this street (and note that this is an area that sees a lot of film crews taking up valuable street parking as well), but if you're lucky enough to find/afford one of the beautiful brownstones that line 7th St you'll be hit with this street's serene beauty every time you walk out your door. (Another word of caution: if you are planning on doing your real estate on 7th St, beware moving close to any of the Avenues - save 6th and 8th - as they tend to either feature heavy car traffic or heavy bar traffic.)

I find myself on 7th Street quite a lot - on my way to either the Barnes and Noble or the Five Guys at 7th Ave, admittedly - and although it doesn't differ from many of the neighborhood streets (as in those east-west streets that are quite a different scene from the neighborhood's north-west lying Avenues). There are a few downsides to 7th (depending, of course, on how you look at things) - New York Methodist hospital takes up the block between 7th and 8th Aves, and causes quite a traffic jam just about all of the time. Then again, if you ever need the hospital's services, it's right there.
Pros
  • Prospect Park
  • beautiful brownstones
  • very green street
Cons
  • no parking
  • Methodist Hospital

"The Delights of Brooklyn"

Brooklyn is a wonderful area filled with great people and places to go.This street not only offers a variety of things to do, but also a variety of places to eat. I think that this is a wonderful street for walking. I also think thatit's a good place for someone looking to save a bit on rent. I think that this area is prime
for any kind of person, and think that this block will be a good place to begin a life in the city.
