"Stay away from 82nd/5th Avenue. Never rent on that block."

82nd street between 5&6TH Avenue is by far the worst block in Bay Ridge. If you check in that precinct, it ranks the highest in crimes committed in all of Bay Ridge. It's loud and drug dealers hang out on the block despite being arrested and cops coming down the block often. Never leave your bike out near this street because there is a family that steals and alters them for a job. You will see cop cars on this block often dealing with drug addicts and dealers almost on a daily basis. There are community meetings concerning this block yet nothing is really getting done. It's a shame because there are some great folks on this block but most have left. How people are bringing their children up on this block is beyond me as they are seeing this behavior on a daily basis. The rent is no cheaper on this block though it's rent stabilized but people move in and out at the end of their lease if the landlord does not let them break the lease before. So the rent keeps climbing. I want to help anyone decent that seeks an apartment and sees it's on this particular block. The rest of Bay Ridge is lovely. too bad they can't clean up this one block.
  • access to clubs/restaurants/shopping
  • fifth avenue it's self is very friendly
  • benches to sit on and have lunch
  • loud and hard to sleep if you live in the front.
  • Parking is hell and your car can get damaged by certain dudes
  • ghetto atmosphere
