Don't do it! I'm black and grew up in that area. My family still lives over there. I live in California now, but whenever I go back home its always a site to see. While it definately isn't as bad as it was in the early 90's, I would say that it is not a god place for the vast majority of people who post on this site. To put it differently, I'd never move back to that area. Stick to Park Slopes, Brooklyn Heights, Williamsburg area's. Don't even bother visiting the place, but if you do, the hood chinese takeoutis pretty good. Pacific and Albany, lol. Thats where the crack heads used to live back in the day! Paul Roberson high school is on Albany and Dean st.
