"Check out Urban Jungle, lively atmosphere"

While Knickerbocker Ave isn't the most lovely street in all of Brooklyn, there are plenty in the neighborhood that are worse. Bushwick features a great deal of warehouses and commercial buildings, and part of this street is home to many of those. One silver lining exists in this area: Urban Jungle, a gigantic and entirely affordable vintage store. Customers will most likely find themselves picking over a lot of clothing, but also they are likely to find themselves returning to see what else has turned up.

The further east you head on Knickerbocker, the more lively the street gets. There are a lot of bodegas blaring music with Spanish lyrics on this (still) predominantly Puerto Rican street, but there are a few great places to eat, like Fortunata's II Pizza.

Residents here tend to be on the poorer side of the New York spectrum, but this street is relatively bustling and safe-ish. Take precautions at night and don't bother traveling here as a tourist; you're out of your element.
  • nearby vintage shopping, bars, etc
  • can be shady and a little too quiet at night

"On Knickebocker Avenue"

This street is FILLED with businesses and even houses a few good restaurants, like McDonald's. (Joke) All in all, I think that this is a nice street in Brooklyn and was very convenient, with several convenience stores, drug stores, etc. It's also home to a park, which is a nice change from the cement the other streets have to offer.
