    w/a, when was that? I find that PH has changed a lot in the last 3 or 4 years. Maybe that Richard Meier building helped bring new people to the neighborhood.

    Nah. Bldg is ugly!

    When did that building get finished? I could never decide whether I liked it or not, but it was only about 1/2 done when we left NYC.

    Late 08, early 09

    Then "inexpensive" is unfortunately not the right word. Maybe "dirt cheap."

    Check Boerum Hill. I live there and it is a great area. Smith and Court Streets are popping with bars/restaurants/etc. It is close to the city(F train at Bergen St is 3 stops from lower Manhattan.) Loads of women(or men if that is ur thing.) Great nightlife. You can walk to Bklyn Heights/Ft Green/Carroll Gdns/etc. Taxis run right down Smith St going back to NYC. Greah hood!

    I've been thinking of moving back to Brooklyn and Boerum Hill is on my shortlist.

    Yeah...he's looking at Windsor Terrace or "South Slope" if you will. My sister lived in Windsor Terrace last year with 3 other roommates, had a tiny bedroom (to herself though), and she paid about $550 a month not including utilities.

    With a budget like this, it's not really a matter of wanting as much as needing
