I'm mostly familiar with parts of Queens, but a friend of mine asked me about moving into a place he saw in Brooklyn, the ad said it's "East Flatbush", the location is here:
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=1130+...ork+11212&z=16

Does anyone have any input on how good/bad that area is?
thanks

That area is more like Brownsville, and no it isn't good.

This the 90s, that's East Flatbush. You go 2 blocks east you land on E 98th st, which is Brownsville.

I saw 11212, which is usually the zip code associated with Brownsville. It's the hood, regardless.

"East Flatbush" is close relative of "Ocean Hill", which is a twin brother to Brownsville. If you want to do research on area, don't get on on B35 or #3 train. I suggest you listen to M.O.P rap album.

East Flatbush is also a solid Carribean working class neighborhood.
