"Warm and friendly and underrated"

Friel Place is a little street that is hidden in a little pocketed neighborhood that is a bit off the beaten Brooklyn track. A very working class neighborhood, the people here are friendly, outgoing and want to let you know about their latest grandkid's achievements. It's an ethnic mix .. it used to be heavily Italian, but now it is more diverse. The homes are mostly one-family attached, with a few free-standing homes in the mix. Location wise, it is close to the Prospect Expressway, which leads you to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel for direct access to Manhattan. On a good day, you can zip into downtown New York in less than 15 minutes. Shopping and services are within a couple blocks. There's no night life to speak of here. This is a solid family neighborhood. People tend to look after each other here, and that's a nice feature.
