Help the community by answering this question:


Good Afternoon, Gary! Last few years a lot o Manhattan residents is "running' to Brooklyn Some of them because of cheaper prices, another one - looking for a private houses with more space. Of'course, your choice depends of the price range that you looking for. You can choose Brooklyn Heights area with a great view on Brooklyn Bridge, or you can buy a house near the Prospect Park to have an opportunity to go for a run every morning. But whatever property you will choose it will become your new lovely Brooklyn home. Good luck with your purchase!

Good area(s) is subjective, and it really should be dictated by personal preferences, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc.; therefore consider researching on your own and take the time to visit areas of interest more than once; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you...

Gary, There are several "good" neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Each has it's own characteristics. A) close to Manhattan?, B) School districts?, C) easy to get around without a car?,D) House or condo/co-op, rental buidlings?, More family oriented than for singles?……What is "good" for one person may not be "good" for another. I will be glad to answer any questions you have. Pat

Dear Gary,

That is a hard question to answer because it is very subjective. There are many good neighborhoods in Brooklyn and if you ask around you will get a myriad of answers. It also depends on your budget.

Your best bet would be to do some research and spend some time here. You should also speak to people you know that live in Brooklyn and see what they have to say.

If I can be of further assistance, feel free to contact me direct. Either way, good luck!
