I live over in Prospect Heights and am familiar with the PH Brooklyian forum. This is my first time posting in the Crown Heights/Prospect Lefferts Gardens section.
I have some friends who live in Park Slope who are considering renting an apartment on Lincoln between Franklin and the Shuttle tracks. They are a tad worried as Franklin and Lincoln has kind of a bad reputation as far as Franklin Avenue intersections go.
Is this unfounded? I know, years ago, this may have been true, but do you guys think that it is an unsafe block? They have a one year old, so they also value a not-too-loud location at night. Is it a quiet block? Or are there frequent summertime parties on this block?
Any thoughts as to Lincoln Place just west of Franklin would be much welcome.
Thanks all, sundinkc
