"A Plain Street in a Residential Neighborhood"
Avenue F is a relatively plain street that starts at Ocean Parkway and runs to Dahill Road. It isn't very long and it is populated mainly with private homes, both single-family and duplex, especially right off Ocean Parkway. There are some small multi-family apartment units. Because of its proximity to Ocean Parkway, residents of this area have quick and easy access to a major route going into Manhattan, plus it is walking distance to one of the Brooklyn's many subway stops. (Remember that "walking distance" is relative!) As you travel down Avenue F toward McDonald Avenue, where the elevated train runs through, you'll find a small park and a few small businesses, as well as a couple of boarded-up and abandoned storefronts. (Living in the shadow of an above-ground subway is not the most pleasant experience.) This is a middle-class neighborhood composed mostly of families with kids. It is isolated from a lot of the hustle-bustle of the rest of Brooklyn, so it still has a lot of appeal.
