I lived in Williamsburg for two years (about five years ago) and I had no idea this street existed. I actually had to go find it . . . and it wasn't pretty. It's right under the BQE way the hell out in the middle of nowhere. It's closer to Greenpoint than any of the popular areas of Williamsburg and I'm not sure many people in Greenpoint know where this is. It's on the other side of the Industrial wasteland part of Greenpoint and it looks pretty much like an industrial wasteland. There's nothing here except for apartments and lots. Contrary to what one of the previous posters said, it's not a quick walk to the Graham stop on the L train. It's about a 30 minute walk from the Graham stop and about a 20 minute walk from the Nassau G. So, it's really not ideal for anyone needing to use public transportation. And, because there's nothing around, I don't feel like it's safe. If you wanted to go to a bar or restaurant, you'd be in for a bit of a hike. And, then you'd have to walk back in the dark in a neighborhood where no one is out which I don't like. And, what about groceries or even a deli? The only plus side I can see to living on this street is that the rent is insanely cheap and a lot of the apartments look like loft buildings which means they're probably quite spacious and pretty cool looking in a gritty way.
