Thoughts about the Kingston & Sterling area?
My daughter has asked me to help her research neighborhoods. This would be for a group of 4 - 5 young women - college to young professional age. All of them have lived in NYC for at least a year. My daughter has lived in Crown Heights the past year at Rogers/Park but is moving due to a steep rent hike (and a landlord who has refused to fix essential things....like the roof). She likes the CH area but knows it can get less "safe" as you move towards the East. She's found a newly gut-renovated 3 br place that she loves, but wants to make sure the area is OK esp. since her job requires some late nights where she doesn't come home till about 2 am.
They would have a 3 block walk up Kingston from the subway at Eastern Parkway. Also, they would be a block from Brower Park. Looks like it's had some crime issues in the past. What's it like now? She's looking at some other places too, including one in Sunset Park, but this seems to be her first choice. Thanks for the help!
