"A street beloved by both singles and young families"

For the most part, 22nd is a residential string of blocks stretching from the commercial area around 3rd Ave to the old school cemetery that stop the street at 7th Ave. The street makes for a fun bike ride westward from 7th Ave - you'll find yourself speeding down a decent sized hill. Greenwood Cemetery reaches even greater heights; if there weren't so many obstacles in the form of headstones the grassy knoll would make for perfect sledding grounds come wintertime.

The row houses here aren't as lovely as the ones a few blocks north in Park Slope (residents of this street live in the neighborhood of Greenwood Heights, or what the younger locals have taken to calling "South Slope"), with one exception on the southeast corner of 4th Ave. The house located there resembles a miniature castle and looks a bit out of place among the redbrick houses and those with aluminum siding.

This area is completely safe - I have lived here recently and never encountered anyone that wasn't friendly, and I've never worried for my safety. Not only that, but there are tons of little bars and restaurants nearby, and there are some really hot spots within walking distance, just blocks away in Park Slope. This makes it a prime location for young single people, but there are also a lot of young families moving into the area, as this is one of the nicer neighborhoods where budding careerist can afford to buy property.
  • quiet, clean
  • close to Prospect Park
  • close to a few cool bars, restaurants
  • features a few ugly row houses
  • hotel on the corner of 3rd Ave draws strange crowd

"A decent street with a few things to do."

22nd street is a decent street, but is in a relatively bad neighborhood, so I don't recommend going here alone. The one place to go on this street is Taqueria, a great Mexican restaurant with excellent sangria and burritos. Other than this, there isn't too much to do on this street, and due to the neighborhood, having drove past once, I wouldn't go there again myself.
