Closer to Kings Highway is safer than toward Foster and Nostrand Avenues. Kings Highway is an area of many Jewish immigrants, Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and Russian descent. Closer to the Flatbush Avenue side of Brooklyn College, it does begin to be a little more ghetto though. The Midwood side of Brooklyn College is actually quite nice and safe.

Overall it's an okay area to live. I personally wouldn't want to live there, but I've been in and out of New York City for most of my life and remember when those areas were much higher in crime and random violence was the norm.

personally i think the neighborhood is up and coming. it is a black area.. very black, but if u dont care, i dont care. i live on Ocean and H. as u go further east/north, it tends to get blacker, but also more middle class black is mixed in with the thug class, as the side streets are all single family homes with big/poor buildings on the corner. Kings hiway and 41st is decent, foster, nostrand, flatbush is a bit sketchier, but you seem like you're down with it, and even the bruthas need their token whiteboy but for the most part, if ur cool with them, then they will be cool with you.

Theres a new Target mega mall coming to that area, and great train/bus service. New nets stadium is literally 10 minutes away by train. You can get to anywhere important in less than an hour.

Needless to say, if you survived and thrived in harlem, you will have no problem in north flatbush.

lemme know if u need more details..
