hipsters usually don't know about using street smarts, sometimes they might get into situations that seems crazy to us but them they just don't realize, i don't know if you see my point...

Ok so for the first time, I actually spent some time in Bed-Stuy. I have to admit that I was very uncomfortable. Keep in mind that I am a hardened veteran from the Bronx. I have never seen so many African Americans in one area. The area looked very ghetto and run down. We started in Clinton Hill, which had many Jews, and ended up in the Stuy.

I have heard from people here that Bed-Stuy is improving, although I did not see any of it. So which is the good and bad areas?

I was on Fulton from about Franklin ave to Marcus Garvey, spending significant time on Alice Court right by the train.

Then spend time on Throop ave between Halsey and Hancock st.

So was I in the worst part?

BTW, Broadway under the elevated from Williamsburg heading towards Bushwick looked extremely run down. Saw a couple of boarded up houses.
Nahh that wasn't the worst part of Bed Stuy. IMO the worst parts of Bed Stuy are anything near the projects with a few exceptions. If you really want to feel uncomfortable you hit up the following:

Stuyvesant Avenue and Hart Street
Marcus Garvey Boulevard and Pulaski Street
Malcolm X Boulevard and Bainbridge Street
Nostrand Avenue and Gates Avenue
Myrtle Avenue and Marcy Avenue
Marcus Garvey Boulevard and Park Avenue
Throop Avenue and Gates Avenue
Ralph Avenue and Fulton Street
Patchen Avenue and Bainbridge Street

Yo fam to be honest when you talkin about housing projects in bed-stuy they are never gunna be nice or safe. I'm very close to Bed-stuy i live the ghetto of clintin hill which is mabe only about a feww or so block from bed-stuy and may part of clinton sees mad crime. Also commenting on the hipsters, i dont see them lasting long. I give most of them a year or two. I'm really surprised after the crazy killing of like 45 people over labor weekend over in Brooklyn didn't scare them off, hipsters are like the rough neck white people. hahahahaha!
