IMO cypress hills is nicer than many (maybe most) parts of bedstuy and bushwick. Historically it never got quite as bad.

Agreed. It just shares a reputation with East New York Proper, and that is south of the Atlantic Ave. I'm not saying it's an up and coming would be trendy neighborhood, but it is not as bad as a lot of people say it is. The neighborhood is in the medium zone. It's not as bad is some nearby areas and it's not as good as some nearby areas. It's best for everyone's interest if the area improves. That would make the entire J/Z/M line more desirable to travel from the airport to south Manhattan.

Cypress hills has very nice housing stock from brick rowhouses to the big stand alone homes over by highland park. Many are rundown looking and a lot of the blocks are filthy with litter. A BID could do a lot for the main drags. Both nearby ridgewood and woodhaven have BIDs and you'll see them out there keeping sidewalks clean. The main obstacle for cypress hills is the high volume of automobile traffic during rush hours and as a result the lack of pedestrian traffic. Between Atlantic, Pennsylvania, Jamaica, Fulton, broadway and bushwick aves with the Jackie and the conduit abruptly ending around there creates a challenge moving forward.

True. I still don't think gentrification will hit Cypress Hills without getting the eastern parts if those neighborhoods because of distance and convenience to manhattan and continuity with other gentrified neighborhoods.

20 years and Cypress Hills will be like what Bushwick is today.

Lol Bushwick to me is basically the same thing as Cypress Hills aside from a few blocks around Jefferson Street with some yupster joints and a sprinkle of marshmallows scattered throughout the rest. Otherwise, the only difference is that now one area is an overpriced dump while the other is still affordable.

And yes, I was there very recently for a decent chunk of time...

I, actually, have to agree with this. Aside from a few blocks, the changes in Bushwick over the years haven't been that drastic.

Nahh not really. The housing stock in Cypress Hills is way different. Way more single family homes.

Ok the housing stock is different in parts. I won't argue that...
