"Avenue K is Just Another Residential Area"

Avenue K runs for quite some distance and I lived in the Midwood area, between the major thoroughfares of Flatbush Avenue and Bedford Avenue. It is a fairly wide avenue with mostly single family homes, two and four-family duplexes and some smaller apartment buildings. It is unremarkable in terms of shopping or nightlife, so in that respect, it was a good place for families to raise kids. Much of Avenue K is not on any major subway line, so most residents would have to walk a significant distance to the train. Bus service is accessible. If you have a car, you would be able to find places to park, since the neighborhood is mostly residential. The best thing that I can say about this neighborhood was that for me, I could walk about 15 minutes to the subway line and get into Manhattan in about 55 minutes. It was a longish-walk but good exercise!
