"A Little Bit of Everything on Ross Street"

Ross Street has a little bit of everything ... it has single and duplex homes, apartment buildings, and during my last visit, some serious renovations going on which promise to increase the neighborhood's appeal. Long ago, this area was considered one of the "armpits of Brooklyn," the area has been part of a renaissance and has had lots of young people moving in and setting up small businesses with a focus on creativity. This is a pedestrian's paradise, since you can walk to stores, houses of worship, schools and doctor offices. It is interesting that there seems to be a lot of physicians in this neighborhood, so you can expect to be healthy if you move here. You are close to the Interstate and there is the constant drone of traffic noise in the background, but people get used to it quickly. It is much better than other parts of Brooklyn which have the elevated trains running past their windows all the time. Rents here are average, but they have been on the rise over the last five to ten years, so that indicates this is a neighborhood with big plans.
