"Cute little street"

Hope is one of those predominantly residential streets in Willburg that's close to a lot of cool stuff, but there's not really anything to do actually on the street. In some ways, that's really nice because it's not nearly as loud as other streets like Lorimer or Bedford. In other ways, it kind of isn't all that nice because it can be a little sketchy at night on the quieter streets here. Hope is a pretty small street a block away from Metropolitan which is nice because you're pretty close to a lot of stuff to do and public transportation without being on top of all of it.
The apartments on Hope are the typical Willyburg apartments. Most of them are really ugly and there are a couple of newer ones. And, the rent is slightly unreasonable considering it's not Manhattan. But, you do get more space than you would in the city, so it kind of works out. The one thing I really like about Hope as opposed to other Willy streets is that there are so many trees on this street. In the spring the flowers start to bloom and this street is really pretty. It almost looks like it's right out of a movie . . . almost.
The best part about Hope street is a place called Good Co. It has a massive back patio that's open every summer AND a happy hour. What's not to love? It sounds kind of stupid, but outdoor space is quite the commodity around these parts and this particular space is great. It's a hidden little gem with no snobby mixology bartenders and no frills. I love this place in the summer.
There are a couple of little places to hit up on Hope although the majority of the street is just apartments. Miller's Tavern is named for Henry Miller because he lived in this area. I consider it mostly a cafe (they have delicious Stumptown coffee), but they do have a full bar and the place is really cute. There are a ton of hipsters, though, so if it's not your thing . . . well, then you probably shouldn't be in Williamsburg in general.

"Noisy and crowded, not likely to visit again"

I visited this area searching for a townhouse My boyfriend and i noticed the street was littered with bums and alcoholics. We didnt bother asking anyone for residential information because no one seemed friendly enough. We had the children with us and the best thing i could think of to do was buy an icee from the local ice man. They had a blast but i truely saw what this street was made of.Houses were crowded and too close together. that means everyone in your business.
