We got an air bnb on stagg street and felt quite safe in this area. Lots of places to eat and subways near by. About 30 bucks in an uber to Manhattan. Would definitely stay in this area again :)

This area has changed over the years and it is a great place to spend some time with friends for drinks and meals. The Sea restaurant is a must, for fantastic Thai food and atmosphere.

A lot of cafes, nice buildings, stores, and the feel of Manhattan is here. Just one stop away from Manhattan, and easily accessible by many bus routes of Brookly

We took the subway over and got out here to explore and we were not disappointed. It had lots of cool places to shop and my wife found a vintage Italian purse that originally cost $1800 for a little under $400, so she was psyched....More

Wandered through this developing neighbourhood, and enjoyed the ambience. A combination of local commerce with a smattering of global retail outlets, in a clearly residential zone.
