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.

I would try contacting the local police department and file a formal complaint. If this is a regular occurance, they may be able to support you.

I might consider investing in or renting security cameras to try to identify who is doing this and then report them to the PD. ... more

Have other residents had any type of gathering on the roof with the same number of guests? Fireworks viewing? BBQ?

Have you read your condo rules regarding use of the roof?

After decades of decline, Bushwick is experiencing a renewal spurred in part by the migration of artists searching for affordable space--something that has all but disappeared in Manhattan. A place once known as the neighborhood that burned down during the blackout of the '60s is quickly becoming the new East Village. GerryV ( ... more

Realtors are really limited in certain areas of information supplying. We are supposed to be the "source of the source." I can recommend you search the internet for information on Williamsburg. You can also look up demographics with the US Census Bureau or go to my website, and look under "community info." ... more

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.

Pierre Calzadilla answered:
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.
