"Amboy Street is Affordable but Not very Attractive"
Growing up in this neighborhood was a lot of fun, since there were always kids to play with and we didn't have to worry about the crime, which is more prevalent now than when I was younger. Amboy Street is in the East New York area of Brooklyn, and runs from the major thoroughfare Linden Boulevard to East New York Avenue. Amboy Street has high rise apartment buildings and smaller townhouse-like tenements, so you can find a suitable place for your family without a lot of effort. Rents are more affordable here than in other parts of Brooklyn and you have enough services on the avenues and adjacent streets so a car can be optional if you can't afford one. This is a neighborhood for street-savvy people. It's a little rough around the edges, not very pretty. But it is close to the Brookdale Hospital Center and has a nice little playground within walking distance. It's a low to middle income class neighborhood and is a decent place to live as long as you're careful.
