"Pretty standard Brooklyn fare"

If there's any reason why I wouldn't want to live on this street, it would have to be simply because it is a 6 lane highway - which is actually pretty rare in the city at all, much less in Brooklyn. Three lanes of traffic are traveling in either direction up and down the avenue, and I know from experience that they aren't all exactly driving at 30 mph.

Besides that, however, the street is pretty okay. It's not Fifth Ave - where you can find a lot of shops and restaurants - but there are a few mom and pops businesses: pizza parlors and Chinese joints and what have you. If you don't actually think about how much traffic is zooming by you at all times, the street is pretty standard as far as Brooklyn is concerned.
  • close to bar/shopping action on 5th Ave
  • afforable rents
  • six lanes of traffic stay busy
  • dingy/awkward shaped apartments

"On 4th Avenue"

4th Avenue is very convenient. This was a wonderful street in the great Park Slope area of Brooklyn housing schools, churches, and small businesses. I really like this neighborhood and I feel that on each street you can find something unique. This is a wonderful area in the city and I think that it would be a great place to start your life here in the city!

"On 101st Street"

101st Street in Brooklyn is filled with small service oriented business catered for the people living in this neighborhood, in what I like to think of as the end of Alphabet City, literally. This neighborhood was, however, classically Brooklyn, and I enjoyed walking around. I felt that there was a lot of noise, but from children and traffic, from living and enjoying life. I think that this was a nice street and was pretty easily accessible. The avenues all lettered in this neighborhood host many of the restaurants and more exciting fare while the streets are mainly residential. The nearest metro was on Avenue U and McDonald Avenue ( the F train) keeping the street well connected. All in all, this was a nice street in Brooklyn.
