i cant speak for the block itself, but i wouldnt walk on kingston avenue north of eastern parkway after dark.....its run-down, shabby looking, with abandoned buildings, and too close to albany projects for me. the brooklyn avenue side is much nicer, thats the side that fronts the children's museum.

the city decided on the boundaries. in 1968, they decided that the southern boundary of bed-stuy was eastern pkwy, and in 1977 they changed their mind and made it atlantic avenue.

In my personal experience Crown Heights as a whole isn't the best community. It's some what getting better but at night it's still kind of a danger zone.

The "city" doesn't determine boundaries, only history and the people do! Laughable!

By what basis do you feel your experience has any relevance?

the department of city planning would love to hear that....shoot them an email.
but either way, if you say history and the people determine boundaries, i know plenty of people that live between atlantic ave and eastern pkwy, and they consider themselves residents of crown heights.

since when people weren't entitled to have an opinion? the poster is speaking from his/her personal experience, which they stated. if you have a different personal experience with crown heights, then by all means share it, thats what the forum is for.
