If your looking for a place to live in Brooklyn definitely consider Crown Heights! The neighborhood is up-and-coming with tons of incredible places to eat a lively night-life which means you don't have to commute into Manhattan for a good time. It's affordable (at least compared to the rest of new york) housing has attracted a nice community of young professionals and families, in addition to the locals. Depending on where you are, you are only a short walk away from Eastern Parkway, the Brooklyn Museum, and Prospect Park. And if that's not enough, lower Manhattan is only a 30 minutes away on the train!

The neighborhood is terrible. Rents unjustifiable expensive.. The streets are dangerous, many shooting incidents, thefts, assaults. I can’t believe people paying so much money to live here.. happily moving out of here! Good luck if you are moving in!
Crown heights is a bustling hipster paradise with almost everything to eat. I live on Franklin avenue and I can literally eat anything I want at any time. I live in walking distance from a Korean Fried Chicken restaurant, two sushi restaurants,an all-vegan restaurant, about four Indian Cuisine restaurant and 2 Burrito and Latino Cuisine restaurants. It's amazing!
