Review of New York, New York

Brooklyn's Fort Greene
Star Rating - 3/27/2009
This neighborhood is often called Clinton Hill or Fort Greene and it's one of the up an coming gem's of Brooklyn. The shop keepers are friendly, there are new trendier restaurants popping up all the time. It's truly a mixed race and everyone seems to get along great. I live on a main street and find the noise to be too much most of the waking time, but the side streets are more ideal for quiet 24/7. The proximity to NYC is great. Subways are all near enough to walk within 10 minutes or bus it to the subway quickly. The biggest downside is quality of life and time to relax or be creative is minimal in order to keep up. Most of my friends are too busy to really spend quality time together and commuting from one side of the city to the other deters the quality and quantity of get togethers you would have in another smaller environment.
