First time poster here. My current sublease is up on 9/15 and I'm scrambling to find a room that I can afford. I responded to a Craigslist ad for a place in Sunset Park and I'm going to check it out tomorrow.
Had I known it was down at 55th street, I might not have sought it out. I've got no preconceived notions - just that most of my friends live in Prospect- or Crown Heights, Bed Stuy, Bushwick or Williamsburg. I ride a bike most everywhere, but with the winter coming on, a late night trip down to 53rd or 59th Street may be more than I'm bargaining for.
Anyone have any thoughts, pro vs con, about that particular area that might help me make an informed decision?
