"A decent/inexpensive living, if you don't mind the neighborhood"

Locust street is entirely residential, but there is a decent and inexpensive gym on the corner of Locust and Broadway, and there is a laundry mat, two pizza places, a burrito joint and a bodega just one block away. On the far side of the street (which amounts to one block), there is an elementary school that releases a massive amount of children midday on school days, so be prepared.

The JMZ line passes this street above Broadway, so if you move in there won't be a home on the street from which you won't be able to hear the train passing at all hours of the day and night. But it's true that you will get used to it (I did), it's just a matter of if you want to or not.

You won't find a good upper middle class living around these parts; this neighborhood is best reserved for those in search of cheap rent who don't mind a bit of a sketchy neighborhood.
  • inexpensive rent
  • a little too close to the elevated JMZ line
  • low income neighborhood
