I just signed a sublet for a place at Tompkins and Halsey. The apartment was great and the neighborhood around there seemed pretty nice.
Does anyone have some tips for that area? Great places to try? Anything to watch out for?
I grew up in Detroit, so I'm pretty street smart. Anything I should know about living there in terms of safety, though? It seemed great during the day, but I haven't had a chance to go around there at night yet. If I'm coming home at night, am I better off getting off the A at Nostrand or Kingston-Throop? I didn't get the impression I would, but do I need to worry about coming home from the subway at night in that part of Bed-Stuy? (Late at night for me is likely more like 12-2, not 3-4)
Thanks! I appreciate any thoughts. I'm really excited about my move.
