"Very Unique Street on Its own"

Wyckoff ave is a decent sized street (spans about a mile in length) that is located in northern brooklyn. The entire Wyckoff street spans from cooper ave to flushing ave. Closer to the cooper ave side of wyckoff the street is mostly residential, some factories and some empty stretches of old buildings. After you pass the Myrtle Ave border it becomes very hustle and bustle NYC is known for alot of stores and people in the area, although not as much as local Knickerbocker ave or Myrtle Ave.
I lived on the intersection of Wyckoff ave and Himrod st. for 4 years and the area is pretty decent although, the block I lived on at the time had some grim abandoned houses, there were a few muggings and robberies a week on this specific intersection until the local precint stepped up security and posted cops to watch the corner. Pretty decent area know of days compared to what it used to be.

"Useful, Convenient, Safe"

As one of the streets which essentially acts as a border between Brooklyn and Queens, Wyckoff ave offers what you would expect from a location that is designed for commuters. It is a stop on the M and L lines which offer convenient access to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. It is laden with services targeted to those on the go, including delis, pharmacies, and utility stores. On this ave is also Wyckoff hospital, which is one of the largest in Queens. Wyckoff ave is convenient and safe, there is a lot of light and activity pretty much at all times of the day and night. There isn't much in terms of entertainment here, but it is not so bad to walk around here for a little bit. There are some stores that are worth checking out, as well.

"On Wycoff Avenue"

This street is filled with a lot of things, which helps to add the to convenience of the neighborhood. I liked the general feel and pace of the street, though it was very hectic. It was a lot like... any street in Manhattan in that sense. You'll find a lot of cheap restaurants here (Subway) and even a 99 cent store, which I absolutely love! There are a lot of service oriented places as well. All in all, a good street. The nearest metro station are the L and M trains at Myrtle Ave- Wycoff Ave, also adding to the convenience.

Magg I grew up on Wyckoff Avenue between Stanhope and Himrod Streets. If you're interested in shopping, it's just a walking distance to Myrtle and Wyckoff Avenues or Knickerbocker Avenue -- both locations are great shopping zones with a diverse selection of discount stores, pizzerias, and small retail shops.

The L train can be found at Dekalb and Wyckoff and the elevated M train found at Myrtle and Wyckoff.

Bodegas and italian bakeries abound in this multi-cultural neighborhood which is anchored by Wyckoff Heights Hospital at Stanhope and Wyckoff.
