"Are you kidding me?"

Well I'm going to be brutally honest here. Do you want the good news or bad news first? Okay let's give the good news first. Rent has been good within the last oh 30 years. My mom lived on that street before she moved out of her parents apartment at 20 years old. She will be 50 next year and her mother and sister still live there, paying very little money for such a great apartment. The bad news? I lived with my grandmother for about a month one summer, and at the beginning, I was terrified of the roaches. By the end of the month, I was picking roaches up like they were my friends. I never got used to the mice. Oh and I remember visiting Grandma one day and there was blood and glass on the first floor of her building. Yep, someone got shot there. Oh and there is a bullet hole in my Grandma's window. Yep someone shot randomly up to her floor. So do yourself a favor, and get far away from Lenox Road. I mean Kings County Hospital is nearby, but you may not make it.

"On Lenox Road"

Unlike its neighbors, this street is very nice to look at and its buildings all share a very unique architectural design. The apartments in on e of the buildings are very large and would be filled with sun in the morning. I think that lower rents for the price of a hike back up from midtown is worth it, especially if you like to entertain and aren’t interesting in living like a cockroach downtown.
