Windsor Terrace is a good suggestion. Particularly as you get further down Prospect Park Southwest Also try Kensington.

Knh39, how safe is Clinton Hill at night? I get out of class pretty late and would have to walk home by myself a lot. I've heard mixed reviews, and I've never been to that area.

Also, I've noticed more apts in my price range around prospect heights but east of Classon... Is that area also nice or is it more dangerous? Windsor Terrace seems like a great option! Thanks for all your suggestions...

I feel really safe- I'm a grad student and I regularly get off the subway at around 10 pm. I also walk my dog in the area right around my house right before bed (at midnight usually) and I always feel fine. The neighborhood is a nice mix of students (Pratt and St. Josephs are both right in the area), and families. I currently live on the border of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill and I love the area immediately surrounding me- have never felt unsafe. My boyfriend also used to live on Franklin and Myrtle and I was super comfortable with his area too. I feel slightly less comfortable around classon and lafayette and south from there. The area south of there feels more deserted at night to me which makes me a bit uncomfortable, and the projects on classon and lafayette are known to be kinda rough.

I like that area too- there are some really pretty houses over there and Vanderbilt south of Atlantic has a ton of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, etc.

i just got back from nyc apartment hunting with a dog friendly area in mind. hoboken NJ was by far the best place i found for dogs. i have never seen so many people walking dogs in my life. several dog runs along the river, lots of areas with grass, and you can get a decent sized 1 bedroom from 1500-1600. also, the commute via path, bus, or ferry is not bad at all... 15 minutes to get to pretty much anywhere in nyc from my experience this last week.
