"Small Street Surrounded by Activity"
Herkimer Place is a small street that is in the middle of a lot of activity. It is surrounded by some very busy thoroughfares that can connect you to all parts of Brooklyn and which have a lot of different services available. Living on Herkimer Place is a very mixed bag, since there are buildings that are used as warehouses, and buildings that contain loft apartments, plus a few small, multi-family units. It's not a pretty street and it may give some people the creeps to walk there at night, but if you go a block or two in any direction, you will feel like you are part of civilization again. I like the fact that you can pretty much get to anyplace else in the city from this street. It is close to bus lines and just two blocks from the subway stop. The major thoroughfares of Bedford, Nostrand and Atlantic Avenue are close by, as is Fulton Street. So there are good services within walking distance.
