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.
