"An all-around average kind of street"

I was wandering around this area recently, desperately searching for the Gowanus Nursery (which I consequently never found), and I have to say there wasn't much going on.

Summit is lined with mostly decent-looking residences, but it's a little close to the waterfront for my taste. (In NYC, waterfront property is vastly overrated. We have too many months of cold weather to live near an icy, windy waterway, thank you very much.) To be completely honest, this street seems sort of dismal to me, even if it is part of the mostly affluent Carroll Gardens neighborhood.

Don't get me wrong, I love Carroll Gardens - there are plenty of cool places to shop and eat - but this street is a bit far from the area's action. That said, it seemed like a family-safe sort of place (in fact, the only people I seemed to see around anywhere were parents with kids or high school-aged kids).
  • it's in Carroll Gardens
  • lots of trees, brownstones
  • subject to winter waterway winds
  • kinda far from cool stuff
  • public transport slightly lacking

"On Summitt Street"

Brooklyn is a wonderful area filled with great people and places to go.
This street not only offers a variety of things to do, but also a variety of places
to eat. I think that this is a wonderful street for walking. I also think that
it's a good place for someone looking to save a bit on rent. I think that this area is prime
for any kind of person, and think that this block will be a good place to begin a life in the city.
