I like Sheepshead Bay because it’s another relatively safe neighborhood that highlights Brooklyn’s diversity and because the transportation is very good. All the stores on Nostrand Avenue from Avenue V to Avenue X were recently built or renovated. They’re also right along the corridor for the local buses, so one can get off the bus to shop after work and not have to walk too far to get home. The B36 and B44 provide frequent service to Coney Island, Flatbush, Crown Heights (also Bed-Stuy and Williamsburg for the hardcore rides), and take little time to get to either the B/Q trains on Sheepshead Bay Road or the 2/5 trains up on Flatbush Avenue. Then there are all the stores by the B/Q train that people can shop in after work, before getting on the B36. Then there are all the stores on Nostrand in Flatbush. Then there are the well-known restaurants and nightlife on Emmons Avenue. This makes a great place to live for the long term.Benjamin
