A little run down but not bad. I use that station all the time and always feel comfortable.

That area was pretty bad in the early 2000s, but now it's decent, I used to hang around that area when I was in high school in the late 2000s. Would still be aware of your surroundings though. Especially around Caton Rd by the buildings or Tennis Court (East 18 between Church and Ablemarle) otherwise it's pretty chill over there. Some decent stores along church Ave.

It's somewhat expensive and populated by Manhattan expats. The food store charged me 50 cents for a roll.

It is not expensive by NYC standards. It is filled with grimy corner stores and markets catering to lower income people.

Demogrophically, seems like mostly Caribbean people and some Mexicans.

Note that is much more gentrified/upscale once you go a few blocks West.

I would have to estimate that 65% of Prospect Park South is gentrified

I have never seen so many people walking fluffy dogs in that neighborhood until now

I've been thru that neighborhood since the early 1980s

Much worse back then. Way more graffiti and madness.

It's funny how the arrival of innocent fluffy little dogs is a harbinger of gentrification. As soon as your local bodega starts putting a water dish and doggie biscuits outside you know your neighborhood is finished.

It's not just about the dogs being fluffy, that was a bit of a joke

But have you walked around the area in the past 5 years, especially closer to Prospect Park? It seems like many residents of the area own dogs. It wasn't like that when I was a kid.
