"East 3rd Street is Diversified"
East 3rd Street is another street that runs a long way through Brooklyn and changes personalities many times. Depending on where you are on East 3rd Street, you could find yourself in a single family or duplex home, or you could find yourself in a dentist's office or you could find yourself in a dry cleaning shop or Chinese restaurant. On one end, East 3rd Streets starts at Vanderbilt Avenue, but it gets cut off by intersecting streets at 18th Avenue and picks up again after Foster Avenue. It is intersected again at Bay Parkway and then picks up again until it ends at Avenue Y. Most of East 3rd Street is residential in nature, with mostly smaller homes and small to medium size apartment buildings. There is a mix of people living on this long street, and since it meanders through several different neighborhoods, you are going to find a different mix depending on where you are. However, living on this street is a good location since it is convenient to public transportation, shopping, small, independent eateries and limited night life. It's an all-around decent street to live on, very middle class.
