"Nice apartments but the street is a bit too far"

Keap street is a little too far out of the way for my liking. But, it's not a bad street. It has a decent neighborhood feel too it and it's quiet because it's far from most of the Willburg happenings. And, it's a few blocks away from some of the great bars and restaurants in South Williamsburg. It's really close to one of my favorite restaurants, Moto, and there are all kinds of things popping up in the vicinity. So, it's probably going to have a bit more bustle in the next couple of years. The thing I don't like about, Keap, though, is that it's still not exactly the most convenient street. It is a couple of blocks from any sort of restaurant, bar or even coffee shop. It's a bit of a hike to the JMZ line and that stop is outdoors so in the winter that's not ideal. Also, it's a little bit scary around here at night because nobody is out on the street because of the lack of night time activities. Anything around Kent or Wythe is a little desolate late at night to me. You add to that the fact that it's at Wythe in south Willy and it's even more absent of people. And, there are a ton of luxury condos that have gone into former factory buildings on this street so you're not exactly paying a reasonable amount. The condos are really nice but I don't know that I'd want to pay $400 k for a one bedroom loft close to the middle of nowhere. It seems kind of unreasonable to me. It's not a bad street, but for the most part, I couldn't justify the price to live on it at this point.
  • Nice new apartments
  • a few blocks from any sort of fun
  • far from the trains

"On Keap Street"

Keap St connects Broadway and Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg. It is not an outstanding street and is out of the Williamsburg’s nightlife scene. However, over the last years new constructions are attracting newcomers into this part of Williamsburg. The street is close to the L train stop Lorimer Street and JMZ trains stop Marcy Ave, restaurants (e.g., Black Betty), and clubs (e.g., the Union Pool).
I think it is a nice place where to live, at least between Metropolitan Ave and Grand St. From Grand St to Broadway, Keap St is too noisy.

"On Keap Street"

Keap Street is a fantasic street in this lively section of Brooklyn. With the J M Z trains at Marcy Avenue and the J M train at Hewes Street, Keap Street is well connected and great for commuters. For residents, this is a place they call home. It is convenient and clean, and the buildings seem well maintained. All in all, a wonderful street in a great neighborhood.
