Whats nice about CH as well is single family homes are still kind of affordable.
Yeah, on a nice block and not far from the train either...about a half-hour to Chambers Street on the J. A 2 income family making $100K can afford this...If I was actively looking to buy, I would strongly consider this place. I am the sole earner and do not make $100K but I can scramble together 25-30% downpayment.

The 2 homes with the manicured lawns a few rows down are nice too. It takes me about 30 minutes from my stop in eastern Cypress Hills to the Bowery for instance, on a good day. Day's where teens out of school are holding train-doors with no regard to other riders and the conductors are another story.

Cypress Hills at it's western end may feel a bit disconnected with Ocean Hill and Bushwick due to the Broadway Junction terminal (Bus and Train) and the industrial area which is situated there. It feels a bit disconnected and differentiated also in comparison with northern ENY proper (south of the Atlantic) and that's due to the lack of activity and commercial businesses there, it's a mix of industry and housing.

Looks more like ENY, but article is identifying it as Cypress Hills. Maybe because its in 11208 and not 11207.

That's definitely not in Cypress Hills, which starts north of Fulton Street. 100% East New York. You could even make the argument that it's City Line. I drive by those buildings pretty often, and they're quite rough looking from the outside. I have no idea what they're like inside.

Pitkin is definitely not in Cypress Hills. Cypress Hills is north of Atlantic Ave, which is 1 block south of Fulton. The property is just a few blocks to the west of the Conduit, most people regard City Line east of the Conduit, quite a triangular area. That's a lot of mullah for that area though.

Google Maps has the boundaries of Cypress Hills really screwed up. According to them the A train at Grant Avenue is in Cypress Hills.

Yeah, Google Maps lumped together both areas as Cypress Hills. The boundaries are rather pistol shaped on GM. If you are on Fulton St and Jamaica Ave in Cypress Hills, there are some storefronts and offices which indicate the neighborhood name on signs. Same for Liberty Ave, there are some offices and storefronts with signs which also indicate the location as City Line.

Eastern Brooklyn is no joke when it comes to bafoonery-goonery. It becomes much more relaxed in City Line, Cypress Hills and Spring Creek. Not to say it's a Forest Hills or Park Slope in terms of safety. One can argue that even Bushwick and Bed Stuy are more uncomfortable than the 3 mentioned neighborhoods in eastern Brooklyn or about the same.

In Cypress Hills for instance and examining police statistics for this year and last year. Most of the crime happened around a restaurant/night club named 'El Gran Mar De Plata' which is near the Norwood station.
