Neighbourhood is safe, clean, gentrified with mostly well educated - middle income families. We stayed in a brownstone apartment located on Berkely Place for 10 nights during our trip to the big apple. Initially reluctant to settle for the suburb, but later reluctant to leave. Great cafes, restaurants and boutiques on 5th and 7th Ave (5 mins walk), well facilitated by three train lines with 20 mins ride to Manhattan. Very bohemian, funky, safe and stylish neighborhood. A fab public park at nearby Prospect Park.
