"Ugly but popular with the young and arty"

Evergreen is a really ugly street in Bushwick (not Williamsburg) that is right smack in the middle of all the other Bushwick streets that actually have things to do on them. I'm still a little too timid to be pro Bushwick because I just don't think enough of the youngsters have moved in yet to warrant the neighborhood safe. But, there are definitely a lot of young people and hipsters in this area. And, the rent is pretty cheap on Evergreen so I'm sure there will be a lot more to come. As they trickle to this street, I'm sure more bars and restaurants will pop up. But, it's still up and coming which is what it has been for about the last six or seven years.
Roberta's, my favorite restaurant in the area, the bar the Wreck Room, Arena, Miles and Tavares are all within a couple of blocks of Evergreen. But, unlike streets close to restaurants in Williamsburg proper, this street doesn't have the trees and quiet that make up for having to walk a few minutes to eat or drink. The street kind of looks like a truck stop which I guess is why it's only popular for the young and artsy set. It's pretty ugly and so are all the buildings. But, there a few amount of little spots to hit in the area, a yoga studio, a cool deli, etc, all within quick walking distance. And, the rent is far better than just a few blocks west. If you're young or in a bad, you just have to weigh the pros and cons of living on Evergreen. It's close to the train but at least 30 minutes to the city. It's a little sketchy at night but probably won't be in a couple of years. It's ugly but cheap, etc.
  • Cheap rent
  • Close to bars and restaurants
  • Hideous
  • Still kind of sketchy
