"A one-block Bushwick oasis, sort of"

Before I start raving about this one block outpost on the Broadway border of Bushwick and Bed-Stuy, let me first state that this is not the safest neighborhood. A lot of residents here are poor - in fact, both Marcy Houses and Bushwick Houses are about a 10-15 minute walk away. So, that being said - at least you know the rents here are pretty cheap by New York standards, which is why a lot of 20-something college grads/artist-types are moving into the area.

This street is great because it is located in the close vicinity of both the French restaurant Athom Cafe and the bar/coffee house/music venue Goodbye Blue Monday. Mostly residential, this block is just 30 seconds away from some of the freshest sandwiches you've ever had. The houses on this block are certainly nothing special, but in New York low rent is hard to come by so spaces around here fill up fast.
  • Athom Cafe
  • Goodbye Blue Monday
  • inexpensive rent
  • within hearing of the elevated JMZ train
  • unsafe area
