Dekalb Avenue is a long street with at least twenty restaurants on it. My favorite place to go is Luigi's Pizzaria, as they have amazing pizza (perhapps the best in Brooklyn), and good service. Anot...

Water St

3.5/5
Ranked 3rd best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"Best View in New York"

- newyorker1001
Water Street has to be one of the nicest streets in New York. Whenever I visit here, I find myself looking at the real estate around and considering moving to DUMBO. There is a great restaurant sittin...

3.5/5
Ranked 4th best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"Great place for a quite night out, amazing view of the city"

Bridge St

3.5/5
Ranked 5th best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"Most Romantic Bridge in New York"

- newyorker1001
The Brooklyn Bridge is a classic attraction to New York. You've seen it in films, on television, couples holding hands and kissing on the bridge under the stars, with the Trade Center behind them and...

Front St

3.5/5
Ranked 6th best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"A nice street "

- Indaco
I have always liked to bike through Front St to enter Dumbo. From its higher point, there is a nice view of the taller buildings of Dumbo, and the houses in the street are really nice. I particularly...

Ranked 7th best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"Cross that bridge when you come to it."

- ajr67
It may not be a street name that conjures up to many images for you but the Brooklyn Bridge is synonymous with New York and should be part of everyone’s itinerary. It’s a fascinating structure, more s...

Ranked 8th best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"Premier Area"

- kaiserhat
Washington Street runs through the historic Greenwich Village. It is truly a premier area. Much of the street is characterized by cobblestones and ivy covered facades. There are a number of landmark b...

Ranked 9th best street in Downtown Brooklyn

"Full of People During the Day, Empty at Night"

- Vespertine1228
Cadman Plaza East is probably best known as the place where almost all the buses in Brooklyn begin and end. All the major crosstown lines stem from here, which makes it easy to get to City Hall and al...

Unranked Streets

Adams St

2.5/5

"Nice Neighborhood along the bridge"

- danisj
This street is right near the heart of Brooklyn. Its where I grew up, so its close to my heart as well. Right along to the Brooklyn Bridge, this street is a prime area for anyone with the right bank a...

Ashland Pl

2.5/5

"Nondescript brick apartment buildings, heavy traffic, Empire..."

- bloomberger
Ashland Place and Dekalb is a major intersection and Ashland itself is a very traffic-heavy street -- people fly down this street very fast. If you look out to the west, you can see an unencumber...

Evans St

2/5

"Quiet little side street just minutes from the waterfront."

- Mitestarossa
Evans Street is tucked into a small neighborhood right before all of the heavy manufacturing plants just around the corner. There are a lot of trees in this area, which makes it more attractive. It...
40.7030554554918 -73.9804933733754

"Lots to do, but don't get run over! "

- BroadwayBK
Flatbush Ave may be one of the busiest avenues in Brooklyn - which of course makes it an undesirable road to drive down, but also an unavoidable one. The area of the street closest to the bridge is hi...

Fleet Pl

2/5

"Not Too Interesting"

- JewishPimp02
There is not much that makes up Fleet Place. It is a short street with few businesses on it and I think a school. It's quite a boring little street but it seems pretty safe and quiet. I'm not sure wha...

Gold St

1/5

"Well, there is parking close by."

- Mitestarossa
Gold Street leads down into the manufacturing plants by the waterfront. The other end of gold is just a thoroughfare taking you down to the manufacturing plants, but there is a lot of parking along G...

High St

2.5/5

"On High Street"

- Macsizzle
This street is really just a thoroughfare and there isn’t much to offer in the way of food or things to do. Perhaps you’d just enjoy the quiet simplicity, though I think this is a little too far for c...

Hudson Ave

2.5/5

"Great Views in Downtown"

- Macsizzle
Hudson Avenue is a great street in Downtown Manhattan. I like this side of Manhattan, as it feels closer to what Manhattan would have been like during the turn of the 19th century. The architecture is...

I-- 278

2.5/5

"Not too friendly, but quiet"

- BroadwayBK
This street gets a higher rating than perhaps the local real estate deserves because it is well paved - a rarity in this area of Bed-Stuy. There isn't much to this street. Where it meets Broadway you...

John St

2/5

"Runs along the waterfront."

- Mitestarossa
Although John Street is heavy with large industrial plants at one end, it does have some redeeming qualities. You do not want to walk alone in this neighborhood at night, but driving through during t...

Lawrence St

3.5/5

"Nice neighborhood , high traffic"

- KeKe82
I absolutely loved this street! The houses are really close together but the neighbors dont seem to mind it. I like the street because the Polytechnic University is right around the corner. I got the...
