"Ghost town street"

Gerry street has a lot of strikes against it especially against other streets in the neighborhood. It used to have these really cool clapboard tenement houses on them with old school store fronts, but I guess the city decided that those were even too ugly for this part of town so they tore them down. And, unlike other streets in the area that replaced the tenements with other, bigger versions of low income housing, this street has remained predominantly vacant. There's almost nothing on this street but vacant lot. And, vacant areas anywhere in New York freak me out even during the day.
There are a couple of apartment buildings on the street and while they are really cheap, there's really no good reason to live here outside of the fact that they're cheap. You're next to a lot and have to walk for what seems like a million years to get to any sort of bar, restaurant or even a decent market or deli. And, because any sort of life is so far away, there's no one walking on this street at night. Add that to the huge vacant part of the block and you're just cruisin for a bruisin, I think. It's sketchy is a horror film sort of way. No kind of cheap could get me to live on that.
  • Chea rent
  • Scary abandoned looking
  • sketchy at night
  • No bars or restaurants nearby

"On Gerry Street"

Gerry Street, like other streets in the neighborhood, is fantastic. It's well connected with Flushing Avenue (G Train) and various parks and place to walk throughout the neighborhood. I like this area a lot and hope that you'll consider living here if you're thinking of making a move to Brooklyn.
