"Dreary, dull and poorly paved location"

Park Avenue can be somewhat unavoidable to a driver trying to make it from Bushwick to Bed-Stuy, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, etc - but there is not much going on otherwise. Mostly residential and featuring the homes of working class and low income residents, this is not the best place to find yourself if you aren't familiar with the area or are alone at night. Certainly, Park Avenue in Brooklyn is nothing like the Park Avenue of Manhattan. Woodhull Hospital ends here - and there are quite a few homeless people sleeping on benches all around here, especially late at night.

Perhaps the best thing - or, only good thing - about Park Ave, the Brooklyn version, is that you can stand on Broadway and look down it and see the Manhattan skyline. But that occasional homeless man using a nearby phone booth as his personal toilet does take quite a bit away from the view.
  • It's bound to be home to an affordable apartment or two
  • Neighborhood is not the safest
