Seems like lots of people asking about this area lately.

It's fine, but not the Upper West Side--pay attention and don't wave your phone around.

Don't let agents (I'm an agent as well) or ads fool you by saying its the cool Williamsburg part. It's not. It's still the hood and not completely safe. People are slowly moving there BUT very slowly as I said still not the safest place and peolpe are learning this the hard way.

I wouldn't call it the 'hood by any means. It's not Bedford, but if you think that it's unsafe, I'd hate to see what you think of some of the truly unsafe areas of the city. Seems weird to call that the 'hood.

I lived at Broadway and Dekalb about three years ago. I don't even consider that to be the hood anymore...and I'm just a run of the mill white girl, so you can talk it up all you want, but there is nothing scary about Hewes and S. 5th. It's mostly Hasidic now anyway.

Born and raised in bushwick projects, this video is from 20yrs ago when growing up there with some old friends, still occasionally work with Nervous Records but only in House Music events only as i left the hood mentality and friends behind a long time ago, for the better.

Its been hasidic since way before my time in the 80's. Where you live by kosciusko st has def changed too. Still there? Where did you move to? Not scary for someone like yourself nor i and others on this board. For someone who has never been around other types or races or doesnt have street smarts or aware of how certain things are it could be scary. Rather safe than sorry, which is why i explain for person to check it out on their own on several occasions, night and day.

I think Hewes and S5th would be way more Puerto Rican and Dominican than Hasidic. You have the precinct a block or two down the street. Broadway is sketchy, especially if walking away from the bridge.
