Descriptions of 537 E 5th St

This neighborhood's Victorian houses and calm side lanes summon a pastoral appeal, yet its business passageways remind you that you've made it to the 21st century. There's a center most Brooklyn neighborhood where you can hitch up your steed at an early 1900s stable. Fortunately, its shops (and Manhattan) aren't demanding to gain entrance to because of the F train. The F train will take you to Kensington's essential business hallway, Ocean Boulevard. Easy access to public transportation to travel through NYC. Kenyatta Nelson (Apr 2013)
