"I'm sure it's lovely but I've heard some things"

Now, I'm not one to take gossip at face value, but as someone who's lived in the neighborhood for a long time, I've heard some things about this block over the years. I've heard that this block is one of the poorer ones out of the area, due to sometimes rowdy bands of teenagers and rumored criminal activity. It's just a little sketchy, let's put it that way. But that isn't to say that you're asking for trouble if you hang around here or move here. All I know is that people who have lived in the area for longer than me say it's shady, and not in a pleasant, tree-lined way. Regardless, the area is great and you couldn't ask for a more convenient location--the subway station is on 25th street, along with a recently renovated supermarket, and if you're a history buff, the Green-Wood Cemetary entrance is also just down the block. Plus, the Green-Wood parrots live in the trees right around the entrance, so you can do some bird watching if you're so inclined.
