"Ugly street in a crummy area"

The nice thing about Debevoise Street is that there are actually some single family homes that are massive and pretty cheap considering the size of them. The bad thing about Debevoise Street is nearly everything else.
I'm not a huge fan of anything around Broadway triangle because I think the area still looks and feels like a slum. The hipsters and artists are definitely making their way in but it's just not there yet, in my opinion. The street is close to a couple of great Bushwick restaurants (like Roberta's) but you have to walk through an urban wasteland to get there. It's scary doing that walk even during the day. I would not want to walk back to my apartment on this street late at night, that's for sure.
Not only is the street sketchy, but it's ugly too. It's run down and really loud during the day with street traffic and foot traffic going in and out of all kinds of bizarro stores. This area kind of looks like Tijuana to me. I don't know how any of these stores stay in business. It's really weird and off putting both in energy and aesthetic. There are so many great neighborhood kinds of streets in this neighborhood, that I can't imagine the appeal of living on this one.
