Yes, it's another "is it safe" post. I haven't seen anything that's relatively recent (past 2 years) *and* covers this particular area, so I hope I'm not being redundant.
Anyway, I'm considering moving a couple blocks east of the 2/5 sterling stop in brooklyn. This area seems to be sort of at the edge of lefferts gardens/crown heights. Some people seem to call it wingate. I'm a white, twenty-something female. I currently live in crown heights near prospect/nostrand and feel pretty safe/comfortable there, so I'm *not* necessarily looking for a completely yuppified whitesville. But I do want to feel reasonably safe walking home at night and I'd also like to have a semi-decent grocery store nearby.
Anyone familiar w/ this area have info *from the past 2 years or so*? This nabe appears to be one of those that's changing ever so quickly, so I'm esp. interested in recent experiences.
