Hello Jaytua - I am in this area everyday and can tell you it is rapidly changing. As you drive down Bushwick Avenue you will notice several new constructions and pending developments. As well, several other projects are already approved and will break ground in the months ahead.

That said, you do not want to over-pay for your new home. If you would like to work with a realtor who knows the area please contact me @ 914-299-0420. This will give me an opportunity to completely absorb your ideas about what you are looking for in a home and find something that is in your price range.

The area has improved however, keep in mind that you are in between two very busy avenues. Jefferson St, Macon St, Halsey street usually have block associations with homeowners who take pride in their homes. U will definitely be reminded on a daily basis of being in an urban area..train trestle runs on broadway, busy.

You will need to personally go, at different times of day to get a feel for the neighborhood/area. You might even want to talk to some neighbors that live on the block. They are usually easy to spot. They'll be the ones who are looking through their windows looking to see what you are doing. Some even come outside. So, take advantage of the opportunity, introduce yourself and tell them that you are looking to buy in the area. Ask them anything that you would like to know. Chances are, they see everything that happens on the block.

Also, there are a couple a websites that you might want to visit to get a better idea of what's in and going on in the neighborhood. So here they are:

1.) maps.google.com

Type in the address and take a virtual walk around the neighborhood. That would be the preliminary "walk" around the neighborhood.

2.) http://www.walkscore.com

Type in the address and it will populate results for everything. From transportation, to, shopping, to banking, to entertainments, etc... It's a personal favorite.

3.) http://www.spotcrime.com

Type in the address and it will populate all the crime reports, from type of crime to time of day it happened to exact location of incident. It's also a personal favorite.

Check those websites out, they will be very useful.

Good luck with your purchase.

Dear Jaytua75:

What is it that you want to know? You can find out a lot about a neighborhood using Google. Use the zip code you are looking in and add words like "crime statistics" or "public schools." You will get lots of information doing that.

Then you want to spend some time in the neighborhood and check out the lay of the land. You may even want to do this late at night!

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, so in the end only you can decide if the neighborhood is good for you or not. Good luck and if I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Keep in mind that opinions are oftentimes subjective, what may be good for one may not necessarily be the case for another; therefore if unfamiliar with the areas, do revisit more than once and at different times of day; look for everything that is important to you, possibly chat with locals/neighbors, etc., then determine where your comfort level can best be reached. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
