"Dangerous area"

Bartlett street is on the border of South Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy which is still a pretty bad neighborhood. South Williamsburg is starting to be quite hip although it's still pretty gritty. But, the movement into South Williamsburg and even Bushwick hasn't exactly reached Bed-Stuy yet. And, I don't think it's going to for some time still. It's pretty scary walking around here, quite frankly. And, I've walked around this street during the day. I wouldn't live here if you paid me right now because I feel like I would never sleep at night.
On the plus side, rent's really cheap and some of the apartments are cool looking because this used to be a big factory area. And, the JMZ train isn't that far which is a pretty reliable train with a nice view into the city. But, there are no bars, restaurants, or conveniences anywhere nearby. And, I doubt any of your friends will be living down the street. It's really ugly and it's really just not safe yet.

"On Bartlett Street"

Bartlett Street is a mainly residential street in a fantastic neighborhood in Brooklyn. This neighborhood is filled with people and life, but typically, with people and life comes noise and traffic, which this area isn't lacking. If you're considering moving to Brooklyn from another part of the city, this area is very easy to find if you take the G train to Flushing Avenue. I think that this area is great for anyone and I would love to go back again!
