"An interesting street"

Flatlands Ave. is a pretty long street, so it is hard to review the street as a whole. I would say it is at least five miles long. The funny thing about this street, is whenever I am on it, I think about that book called flatland where everyone lives in a two-dimensional world and they discover a one dimensional world and think it is really weird. It is in an area that does not have a lot of train stations, so depending where you are on the street, you may be a little bit far from a station. The interesting thing about the area is at one time it was its own city or town, so there is a little different feeling there than in the rest of Brooklyn.

"Nice and lively but annoying"

This street offers all that is great about city living, especially New York City living, without making you wish you never decided to live here or visit. the people are all pleasant and the noise levels decrease as the night comes. Unless it is the weekend or a holiday. That is another story.
