"Lots of Diversity on Brooklyn Avenue"

Brooklyn Avenue in Brooklyn, New York runs quite a ways through the borough, crossing a lot of major intersections as it meanders from neighborhood to neighborhood. It pretty much starts around Fulton Street in the old "downtown" area of Brooklyn, in what is part of Bed-Stuy, and continues several miles past Atlantic Avenue, Eastern Parkway and Empire Boulevard, until it is intersected by the large medical complexes of the Kings County Hospital Center and the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center. Then it continues again through the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, coming to a stop at Flatbush Avenue and Avenue J. Because it transverses so much territory, the street is extremely diverse as it goes through all of these wonderful sections of Brooklyn. Brooklyn Avenue is rich in culture, and rich with nice old homes, apartment complexes and smaller multi-family buildings. I am most familiar with Brooklyn Avenue as it goes south from the hospital complexes. In that area, there are some of the most beautiful brownstone homes, with the rounded front windows and large, stoops. This is a family neighborhood and you can often find three generations of a family living in the brownstones ... the grandparents, their kids and the grandkids. that is what makes Brooklyn Avenue so special -- it really feels like "home" when you're there. There are some small shops and services on Brooklyn Avenue, but most of the restaurants, grocery stores, dry cleaners and businesses are on the other major streets surrounding the neighborhood. Brooklyn Avenue is just wonderfully residential. And obviously, it is close to excellent medical care, since the medical complexes are not far.
