"Nice street on a park"

Maspeth is actually a really cute street just until after Cooper Park. It is only a few blocks away from the Graham Ave L stop and all of the bars and restaurants in the Graham and Metropolitan area. But, this is a really residential street so it's much quieter than Graham and Metropolitan. The street is maybe a hairline less safe because it's east of Bushwick Ave and because there isn't any sort of commerce on the street -- there's really no one out on Maspath at night. But, it runs right into Cooper park which is great. It's not a huge park but it's charming and there's a great little dog run. Plus, living around any sort of green is always a bonus.
The apartments are a mixture of old, three or so story buildings, a few townhouses and a lot of new condos or "Fedder" buildings. The newer buildings tend to be west of the park. And, the neighborhood around the park and a little bit of east of that is a bit older of a demographic with families, retirees, etc. This part of the street is largely Italian and they've been there for some time. But, I kind of like that. It makes the street have a neighborhood feel. The part of the street west of the park is a mixture of Italian, longtime families, hipsters and yuppies (who live in the newer buildings). So, it's a pretty broad mix of people. I like Maspeth and I would live on it. I would just walk briskly back to my place after dark.
Oh, the street runs right into an Industrial cloud just after the park so you have to live as far west as possible or else you're getting into scary territory.

"On Maspeth Avenue"

Maspeth Avenue is filled with various businesses and small shops in this fluid and exciting neighborhood in Brooklyn. I really liked the look and feel of the area and also the friendly people. I think that this is a good place to live if you’re looking to move to Brooklyn, as this street is very close to the scenic East River. All in all, this is a great street in Brooklyn and definitely one you should take a look at.
