We were driving a black rental car, watch punks ducking into doorways as we drove down the street.
My nephew said the car looked like a undercover cop car and that is why they were hiding. I would at that time never let my wife or kids ride through there much less live there. I hope it has changed since the last time I saw it. As for getting robbed or raped or even killed, I think the police do a great job but they can't be with you 24-7 so its up to you to take care of yourself and your family. If New York had a law like many states do, law biding citizens could carry concealed hand guns. This way you would have a fighting chance against the the low life that wants to take your property or your life and if they think you might be armed,they may think twice before trying anything.
Seems to,me the,ones,with very positive ,feedbacks are the broker which may not have lived there currently, but am particularly interested in OCM straightforward answer. Seems bedstuy has higher crime rate than bronx then. Ihave no data though.
I remember when the original "French connection" movie was filmed there and when the city tore down the elevated train from Myrtle/Broadway to downtown Brooklyn. I remember going to McCaren park in Williamsburg where you didn't want to walk alone and that area has taken off big time and is now a much sought after area to live. Pardon me for waxing nostalgic.
It's always wise to look out for one's family and like everywhere or anywhere, you always have to be careful and mindful of your surroundings and the people who live there. Best to you and your daughter.
Good watching out for your daughter! There are many websites providing such information. You may start by going onto Google such for crime rates/high crime areas in Bedford-Stuyurasent, Brooklyn. Wherever she lives, she would need to be very careful.
It is very nice of you that searching the area for your daughter. She is so lucky...
Here is helpful websites that you can search online
Hope it helps,
As a woman living alone she needs to place herself in a safer area where there are families and more professional type people or to leave near a collge so she can lessen her risk of crime.
Good luck !
