Depends on how much you can endure.
PPL from east flatbush has been pushing westwards and ocean ave is becoming what flatbush ave was couple years ago. I would choose not to be where DxO and try to live west of Cone y Island ave. You do have the Ditmas Park nearby which can slow down the ghettonization process of that nabe. It is not a good choice if you are sensitive to sketchy environment.

I feel confident considering I'm used to the city life on the west coast although I know it's a different world. More concerned for my girlfriend if she is walking home from the subway at night.

ppl hang out way late and have no consideration of others who need to sleep and get up to work the next morning. if you can, move westwards of ocean for at least three blocks. the further, the better.

Dorchester Road is the hood. Summertime can get dicey. If you're not used to living in a hood environment, then stay away, it's not fully gentrified in that part of Flatbush yet.

In your opinion. Do you think the crime is more so with individuals associated with organized crime and black market industries... Or random acts of violence and robbery. Or both equally?
