It looks like you are referring to a neighborhood of Brooklyn known as Ditmas Park- which is a fantastic area. I actually live in the area myself and would be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Please feel free to give me a call if you are still in search for a home. 718-619-0413... more
Dangerous. Seedy. Shady. Safe. Nice. There all keywords for something I'm sure you can figure out and that in a lot of cases doesn't really have much to do with the climate in the area. Always keep that in mind when trying to find info on sites like these.... more
Most homes are broken into when people are at work around 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM try to use good pick proof dead bolt locks and keep your windows closed and locked. At night time it is unusual but keep your doors + windows locked when your home or sleeping. If you need to open a door for someone always look through the peephole make sure you know who is at your door and it is good to have a security chain on your door with 3" screws that you screw into the frame of the door. Greenpoint is a pretty safe place to live but remember there will always be some crime.
