"Great Memories on Slocum Place"

I spent a lot of time on Slocum Place when I was going to college. My best friend lived on this charming street, which is only two blocks long. It is made up of older, single family homes and there are actually trees on the street. In fact, some of the homes are large enough to include little gardens in the back or on the side. Slocum Place is one of those hidden treasures, since it is carefully hidden, but still very accessible from the major Coney Island Avenue thoroughfare. Although Coney Island Avenue is filled with a variety of commercial businesses, it still is a fast way to get from one end of Brooklyn to another, so living on Slocum Place is ideal. Parking is good and you are close to the subway stop on Cortelyou Road. This is a very private neighborhood, middle class and clean. People who live here have been in the neighborhood for years, so it is not as transient as other places. Prices remain stable and the people living here are middle aged to older. It is still as nice a place as it was years ago, as I visit my friend's family whenever I'm in town.
