"Some cool things but pretty sketchy at night."

Wythe Ave is kind of a desolate street. There isn't much to do or any kind of bustle and it's really scary late at night. Walking around past 10 on Wythe actually scares me a little bit. The quiet would be a great respite from how out of control Bedford and Driggs are, but the street is so ugly that the quiet is just creepy. It's a bunch of abandoned buildings, warehouses, etc. and apartment buildings. There isn't much on this street but there are some places that are definitely worth mentioning.
Nita Nita is a cool Spanish Tapas place with a great Patio and a jukebox. It's so nice to go for dinner here on a summer night. Relish Diner is such a cool spot with a gigantic patio that has had terrible food; but, the owners changed and the food is going to be great once it reopens. This is such a cool spot for brunch but it is hipster central -- so beware of being judged. Brooklyn Bowl is one of my favorite things in all of Williamsburg and it's on Wythe. I love this place. It's old timey and dark and has great bowling alleys. They have a ton of beers on tap, food by Blue Ribbon Bakery. They also have live music on weekend nights. It's just a great time to be had all around.
So, go there to eat and bowl and get out before it's too late.

"Great music and shops"

Get off the L Train at Bedford Ave and walk toward the river. Wythe Avenue is right there. It is a quiet street and a great place where to live. Within walking distance, one can find extremely good restaurants and great music. My favorite spots are the diner at the corner with N 3rd St and the Zebulon Café, where you can find great live music practically every night.

"A Beautiful Street In Brooklyn"

As a beautiful street in this great borough, I'm sure you won't be disappointed by all it has to offer in terms of accessibility. I think that this street, though lacking in terms of food and fun, might be a good place for those of you looking for something in the way of the water, which this street is very close to. You'll also find many buses nearby, as well as the subway at Marcy Ave (J,M,Z). All in all, this is a good street in a good neighborhood.
