  • It is a fairly long Avenue and not you can analyze it regardless of their different sectors. The northern sector is normal, but the South is more bravo. Prospect Park for the South is almost 100% African American, and even though to my I personally spend anything, feel that the environment is more dense, to put it in some way.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
