The street itself is not particularly attractive, it is a busy main street with some very attractive tree lined streets going off it with great little cafes.

My favorite cheese and sandwich shop Stinky Brooklyn is at 215 Smith St. Unfortunately you also have corporates like Lulu Lemon and others... More

There’s a lot of new construction in the area,it is to be hoped that not the soul is lost.The next phase of gentrification (the national brands starting their invasion) is apparently upon Smith Street.But there's still worth visiting restaurants, but do not wait too long your visit

From a shanty Irish neighborhood to a Puerto Rican slum.Nowadays it's a cool hipster area with all types of restaurants From Atlantic Ave to #rd st. there is an abundance of all kinds of shops and store.No doubt you'll be amused.
