"Quiet for a hipster street"

Catherine is a little street close to Cooper Park that is entirely residential. It's a very hipster street, in my opinion. It's far enough away from Graham so that the rent is a bit cheaper but it's close enough to the bars and restaurants. I'm sure all of the longtime Williamsburg residents that live on Catherine are a little less than pleased about the influx of hipstertown because Catherine is actually a little noisy considering it's a residential street. It's not nearly as bad as Graham or Metropolitan but it's not as sleepy sounding as it looks. I, personally, like that because it makes me feel safer when I can hear people.
The apartment buildings are pretty standard looking for the area from the outside but for whatever reason I feel like they're not as nice as the some other streets. I could be completely making that up because the street seems hipster to me, though. Catherine is really close to a nice little park and not too far from the Graham stop of the L train. It's a couple of blocks from all the Graham Avenue bars and restaurants, but there aren't any of those on Catherine itself which makes it a little quieter. Catherine's not too shabby of a street to live on. I just feel like it's for the younger set.
  • Cheaper rent
