I think this is Crown Heights.
Have you ever been to Crown Heights or Brooklyn overall?

What would you consider a safe neighborhood?

I almost lived not too far from there (Crown St. near Washington Ave.) so can't really give you an accurate review, but I'm kind of glad now that I don't live there.

If you want to see what it looks like, go to google maps, plug in "President St. and Nostrand Ave., Brooklyn NY" and click on street view.

you could check out past threads on Index :: Brooklynian.com | Brooklyn Blog and Message Boards to see what's being said. I think Lefferts Gardens is all south of Empire Blvd. and you are north of there. I suspect the area will be ok for you given what you've said- though I will reiterate that I don't know the exact block.
