"Some nice homes but the distance isn't ideal"

Yikes, this street is far. Lombardy Street is so far north in Willburg, that it's neighboring on the northern part of Greenpoint and Queens. There's really nothing up here and it's bordering on the part of the neighborhood that's heavily polluted which makes it not exactly ideal. And, the southern part of Lombardy has some really beautiful homes and apartments that are pretty cheap with a lot of space (a lot of them even have yards which is crazy). But, the northern part of the street looks like an industrial wasteland with a bunch of warehouses. Getting a three bedroom apartment with outdoor space for less than $2500 / month is a pretty great deal, but you have to pay for it in other ways.
For one, transportation is criminally far away from Lombardy Street. So, if you have to commute into Manhattan, it's really a pain. And, the walk to even a deli or market is pretty far, let alone any sort of restaurant or form of nightlife. Running out to get coffee is a bit of a chore on Lombardy. And, the northern end of the street is pretty sketchy at night because it's so vacant. It's really a toss up. You have all of this space for a reasonable price, but you have to really enjoy that space because walking anywhere else isn't exactly pleasant or easy.
  • Spacious, pretty homes

"On Anthony Street"

This street is not very interesting. With small business mainly dealing in wholesale and freight, I didn’t really find too much in terms of entertainment. As far as living here goes, this might not be the most desirable place to look when moving to Brooklyn. The nearest subway station is at Graham Street (L Train). Basically, I wouldn’t put this street on a site on any tours of the city. The proximity to the Brooklyn Queens Expressway explains it’s service industry feel, and so it is convenient if you’re looking for a service of some kind near the highway.
