The Crown Heights Moment

New, 4 comments

Let's hear it for Crown Heights, this week's neglected neighborhood that's having a moment. From the Daily News profile: "This small section of Brooklyn bordering Flatbush and Brownsville is battling rising crime and living costs with genuine kindness that crosses ethnic boundaries. Which is a good thing, because...the diversity is so strong it hits you in the face." The housing's cheap, too! Single-family homes go for $525,000 and 2BRs rent for $1,200/month. [NYDN]
