"I lovve Washington Ave."

I have lived on washington from since the late 80s and have always have loved this street that probably why i have lived there so long. There is so mush there like libraries, subway, buses, and restaurant. The only problem i have with it is all the yuppies who are moving in. They arent really nice neighbors and i hope they dont bring this great street down the drain

"I Love it here!"

Oh my goodness! When i visited Washington Avenue, I was in awe. Everthing in New york makes me gasp, but this place reminded me of a little Rodeo Drive in California. The shops with great product and service shops for things like insurance, cosmetics, anything you need or may want. The way the avenue makes its own natural beat with feet walking and friends laughing is wonderful.

"On Underhill Avenue"

Underhill 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. All in all, this is a great street in Brooklyn and definitely one you should take a look at.

"On Washinton Avenue"

Washington Avenue is filled with several service oriented businesses and shops. This area is wonderful and near the beautiful East River. With limited traffic and a nice neighborhood feel, this area is a great place for people with families or looking to take a break from the hecticness of the midtown area. This is a good place to live and I really enjoyed the area.

"Underhill Avnue quiet, but too hip"

Underhill avenue has the potential to be wonderful, but sandwiched between rundown and trafficked Washington Ave on the East, hip Vanderbilt Avenue with the Soda Bar Lounge to the West, and Bergen/Dean/Pacific Street's dismalness to the North has not allowed Underhill to completely flower.
