I like that Fort Hamilton is easily explorable as you can memorize the streets easily. The neighborhood has many stores and places to eat along the street. It is always an easy commute as the trains like the D and the B35 bus is nearby.
It can be quite cold and rainy from Winter-Spring! We've had one severe blizzard warning but it turned out to be nothing. We somewhat regularly get flash flood warnings.
