"Great if you like dollar stores and busy trash-lined streets"

This tiny street is located relatively close enough to the hipster loftsville described below, but hipsters and their trendy cafes aren't generally found on Varet Street.

The area is more commercial in that it is lined with cell phone stores, bodegas, and dollar stores that appeal to the masses who come to buy inexpensive clothing and wares on the intersecting Graham Ave (Ave of Puerto Rico) and the subsequent interesting Broadway. There is a Bank of America located on the corner of Varet and Graham - which is incredibly convenient for residents as this isn't exactly an area rich with banks. Where the street intersects with Manhattan Ave there is a huge Food Baazar, a grocery store that stocks a number of specialty items such as entire stalks of sugar cane.

The street and foot traffic on Varet Street is not incredibly bad, but neighboring Graham and Humboldt see quite a bit of both kinds of traffic.

Actually located in the neighborhood of Williamsburg, this tiny street is located very close to the Bushwick border.
  • near every cell phone store imaginable
  • Food Baazar
  • not a particularly nice or pretty street
  • unsafe part of Williamsburg/Bushwick

"This is a small street, typical of industrial bushwick"

This street is in the loft district of Bushwick, or "East Williamsburg" in Brooklyn. Lots of young hipsters and students at Pratt and NYU live in the old industrial warehouses and factory buidings in this area. Be wary of these places, as bed bugs are a really big problem on this street. You can walk to the L train and to the C-Town food Mart, plus a few coffee shops, such as the Archive.
