"The Old Sartoga Avenue of the 70's"

I use to live right around the corner of Saratoga Avenue from 60's to the early 80's. From this nice serene picture. Saratoga had made a complete change and big improvement than the burnt out abandon apartment buildings that was once there. It's hard to believe that Saratoga was like the wild west with all in fighting and drama it once had.And that was from Sartoga and Dumont ,Blake and Sutter Avenue .Three blocks of hell...lol It was a time if you walk down Saratoga Avenue going to Pitlkin Avenue you was almost guarantee to see somebody fighting or some kind of drama .And if nobody knew you .You could get jump by gangs.Ahhh yes good old Saratoga Avenue may it rest in peace.Long live the new Saratoga Avenue with it's nice private houses.

"A starter area"

I called Saratoga avenue a starter area because it is a place you would want to start off at when just arriving in Brooklyn. this is due to low rents and overall a low cost of living in comparison to other places in Brooklyn let alone Manhattan. it is a very urbanize place with a lot more apartment buildings than houses. if you know how to handle yourself you will not get into any trouble with the bad elements in the area mainly bored teenagers with nothing to do and the now and again druggie. they are plenty of places to buy food, clothes and even furniture. overall its a OK place to live but, you do not want to spend your entire life there.
