Me and my roomie are checking out a place tomorrow in "east williamsburg" whatever that means.

We are 2 blocks from the JMZ station and assuming the place lives up to expectations we will probably sign the lease, my question is whether or not this is safe area, i know these lines can get sketchy later at night, and i would often be comming home late at night from manhattan. Would this be a safe commute for a college student?

Myrtle on JMZ is in East Williamsburg?

At this rate, the entire Brooklyn and parts of Queens will be "East Williamsburg" in ten years

If north of broadway it is bushwick and if south of broadway it is bed-stuy. Neither side would be considered safe, but right around there I'd think the bushwick side would be safer. During the day the myrtle broadway stop is pretty heavily used so safe for commuting. Wouldn't take it at all hours of the night. All depends on what you can tolerate, but for sure there is a lot of crime, and likely has more crime than most people are accustomed to.
