East New York is another story, terrible reputation, not as attractive as Bed Stuy or even Bushwick, not close to DTBK the Financial District and Midtown. Lot's of infill in ENY too. If I can roll my dice, I say the areas north of Pitkin Ave and south of Atlantic Ave may get some new comers some years down the line. This may occur when the Broadway Junction is redeveloped and spill over from neighborhing Bed-Stuy, Ocean Hill and Bushwick occurs, and whatever is going to happen to Cypress Hills too.

I am very appalled at this. The area is not run down. I mean, have you guys lived in the area? The area is definitely changing for the better. Soon it will be as expensive as Bed-stuy, if not even more since the area isn't congested like Bed-stuy or Willie-B. They have opened up Gateway mall years ago and now recently added more stores; they are also building more homes around that area.

I try to only comment on areas I know for sure and it just bothers me that some people make comments about BK but never lived in BK and only follow whats on the news or from hearsay.

Stick to Cypress Hills or Cityline in East New york, those areas are mostly hispanic with a big arab population near the Ozone Park border, It's mostly brick row houses with some victorian and woodframe houses in Cypress Hills, more of a stable neighborhood feeling with very few empty lots unlike south of Sutter ave. ENY only has Projects on the south end of the neighborhood (Pitkin ave. south) stay away from Linden blvd. or Livonia ave. especially.

Pretty sure Southside Jamaica Queens has a higher murder rate and by the looks of things ENY will be the next neighborhood on the gentrification train. Now that Bed-Stuy and Bushwick are certified hipster neighborhoods ($$) more and more hipsters will be priced out and move to the next neighborhood over which is ENY (Cypress Hills especially).

Thank you for your positive comment about ENY. I am always on the defense especially since many have not lived in the area.

And yes, Brownsville is the hood. It has the most housing complexes, aka PJs. My grandmother used to live in Brownsville for years before she expired years ago. I loved her dearly but disliked visiting the area.

Not sure if Brownsville will ever get gentrified since the "poor" folks need a place to live when they eventually get kicked out of Bed-stuy and other surrounding complexes since they may want to turn them into co-ops or condos, etc. They may just send everyone to the Rockaways and create another man-made storm like Sandy to annihilate the population.

My two cents.

Hmm interesting. Idk if this has to do with the city or developers, but I live in Brownsville & I've been seeing construction going on with restoring abandoned houses. One of them actually looks nice now. I doubt we'd see something special like ENY or those other areas though, a true shame.
