"Too far from everything"

Clymer street is a decent street that runs through the Orthodox Jewish area of south Williamsburg right on the border of Bed Stuy. There are actually some really pretty buildings on this street. There are some great, old factory buildings and some lovely brick duplexes and townhouses. And, the rent is pretty cheap as are the sale prices of the buildings. You can actually buy a duplex for under a million dollars which is really cheap for New York. But, the street has way too many drawbacks for me to ever consider living on it. Because it's a predominantly Orthodox Jewish area, there's nothing to do within blocks that isn't catered to that. The only public building around is a synagogue. And, if you're not Jewish, you won't have many friends within quick walking distance (they tend to kind of stick to their own). It's not the greatest area either. It's still really gritty around here and none of the Williamsburg has trickled this far south yet. You have to walk all the way to Broadway for any sort of good restaurant or even a deli. And, it's desolate at night which is especially scary because of all the old factories. It's pretty sketchy at night and sometimes even during the day. It's quiet, though, and kind of pretty. But, it's hard to leave the neighborhood because transportation is so far and there's nothing to do in the neighborhood, so you're kind of at a loss.
