I was looking for a place in Brooklyn, which I have heard compared to Boston, and right on or near a park so I could get out into some sort of a green space. I couldn’t afford Park Slope so I looked into renting a room with some people in Highland Park and I am satisfied with the decision because I can have the access I need to the city but when I go for my running I don’t need to do it on a street. Plus my neighbors in the cemetery not far from here are nice and quiet. Ha! I think you do need a little bit of street smarts to live here, though.John P.

I mosey through here all the time for school. I study photography so the park and the cemetery are awesome resources for me but since I’m over near Broadway Junction when I head to the park I have to walk through the neighborhood. I don’t know about going through here late at night but during the day it’s cool. I def don’t bring my nice cams and lenses though most times.
