When I was a kid in Brooklyn, you were taking your life in your hands venturing deep into Prospect Park, but now... It's Beautiful!!!
They have great hike trails throughout Prostect Park with bird watching, wildlife, a lake, waterfalls (small ones) and gravesites with stones you would have to take rubbings of to determine the name and date on them.
They have guided tours and maps of the park for hiking also.

You need to speak to an attorney about evicting your brother. Call the local Bar Association (Kings County Bar Association) and ask if there are any pro bono attorneys that can answer your questions. Perhaps the local law library (usually at the courthouse) has a packet on evictions you can purchase and would know if any legal clinics will be held on the subject.
Real estate agents cannot give you legal advice.... more

East New York, and all of Brooklyn for that matter has been seeing an increase in values. Like any investment, every property is different, and when it comes to investing in a business - even more so than a regular property - there is always risk. The area could be great, and the business could fail. Therefore, my simple answer is "yes" every area should be considered for business - just depends what kind for the particular area. You need to think about competition, demographics, size, location, public transportation access, etc. If all these things add up for you, then it doesn't matter if it is East New York, or The Upper East Side - there is always a risk.
I recommend you work with a COMMERCIAL real estate agent, they will be able to guide you through the process.... more
