"A rusty road smattered with gems"

Seigel Street is located in an area of Williamsburg (an area very close to the neighborhood of Bushwick) that is still undergoing the effects of gentrification. There are a range of residential buildings located along this street, ranging from the loft city near the L train to the city-run housing projects at the west end of the street. Obviously, the income of people on this street ranges from low to average.

Seigel features a number of neighborhood hotspots (read: places that are attractive to residents but aren't worth going out of your way for) such as King's County bar between White St and Bogart, Brooklyn's Natural 24-hour organic store and sandwich shop (the hours are convenient and their stock plentiful for a small place, but they are rather expensive) and the local library on Bushwick Ave and Seigel.

Beware of parking in this area, as I often see the remnants of smashed car windows on the side streets between Seigel and McKibben, and Seigel and Moore. I wouldn't leave my car in front of an industrial building (this area is home to many) or in front of a brick fence.
  • King's County
  • Brooklyn's Natural
  • plenty of hipster lofts
  • lots of car break-ins
  • not exactly the safest/cleanest area

"On Seigel Street"

Seigel Street is a wonderful street in a nice neighborhood. I think that every neighborhood has its ups and downs. This neighborhood can be a bit noisy and loud, but it's lively and filled with people. I really enjoy the feel of this neighborhood. I think that everyone who lives here really enjoys living in Brooklyn but also wants to be connected to the city.
