Crooklyn! LOL

Yes, trees grow in Brooklyn. There are numerous areas in Brooklyn that are very nice. Atlantic Avenue has a very large Middle Eastern community as well as the other areas mentioned. Bed-Stuy, East New York and generally any area in the news for crime can be bad. Rents are also very telling when dealing with nice neighborhoods.

NYPD has neighborhood crime reports on-line too. Brooklyn College will actually be your best source of living-quarters. The colleges and universities go out of their way to provide out-of-town students with packages that are extremely helpful.

Given the OP is Islamic, not to likely a *ham* sandwich will do him in....

OP go somwhere else, given that you ate so naive and ignorant, you;ll be better off.

Damn, I wanted to say that!

Mama Cass died of a heart attack, anyway. The ham sandwich story is an urban legend.
