The area is much better than it use to be... I'm from Cypress Hills. Pretty much right where ya property is. I grew up on 2961 Fulton Street (between cleveland & Elton) so I know the area very well... The built it up sooo much... much betta than what it use to be... For those who say stay away they're probably referring to the southern portion of East NY. Much more gutter there! Trust, I got fam/peoples in The Pink Houses... It's nuttin' nice...

well, i live across the cemetary, it seems a quiet neighborhood to me. havent got any problems besides living near the cemetary. im talking about the section where the B13 route runs. but its safe over where i live, i'm not going to say its completely but its much safer near the section with the j trains are at.

I almost don't want to tell him the truth lol.

That area is no good. There are good people there but unfourtanately so many gangs, gangsters, drugs etc that it ruins everything else. Like someone else said it would be great to rent affordable housing out to low income people. This is a rough time and people need it. But don't let us influence you not to do what you want. Some of the greatest decisions ever were made in the face of adversity.

Selling may be difficult in these times, but you never know. As for renting, there are landlords on this board that will tell you to take your time with your selection of a tenant. I agree with that. Good luck!

Cypress Hills is considered part of East New York and while I think it's the safest section of East NY [well, except Starlett City], it's still is a pretty dangerous area. I drive down Crescent Street and Jamaica Avenue all the time and I wouldn't want to live there.

Like the above poster said, its not the pink houses, but even the safest part of ENY is still very bad. Rent it section 8 and make a buck on.

I'm a young white female who lived in East New York (Cypress Hills section) for about 3 years. I actually didn't mind the neighborhood AT ALL. If seeing run down houses scares you, then don't come. No one EVER bothered me, or my family. I currently live in Ridgewood, and while much more diverse, I would live in Cypress Hills again any day. Go South of Pitkin, and it starts getting a little shadier, or go West of the Police Station on Sutter, and it's the same over there, but still not that big of a deal.

Things could happen in Cypress Hills, just like they could happen in ANY OTHER NEIGHBORHOOD, and they have.
