"Parts of Herkimer Street are Quite Nice"
As with most streets, Herkimer Street has its good parts and its not so good parts. The "good" parts definitely outnumber those that are lacking. Herkimer Street has a long and vibrant history and there are numerous brownstone tenements and multi-family walk-up apartment buildings here that have been well maintained over the years with residents who have been living here for decades. The street has a lot of neighborhood pride. Herkimer Street is right in the middle of a lot of activity from surrounding streets and avenues, including Fulton Street, which goes into "downtown" Brooklyn, Atlantic Avenue, Eastern Parkway, Fulton Street and Broadway. There are lots of small stores, bodegas and mom-and-pop businesses within walking distance, so you can live here without having to venture too far out of the neighborhood. Access to other parts of Brooklyn is very good because of numerous bus lines, and it is walking distance to the subway stations. This is one of the better looking streets in this part of Brooklyn and an address on Herkimer Street looks good on your resume!
