I am a Professor at the City University of New York and have been living with my 16 year old son in the apartment since 2001. We love the neighborhood, the closely-knit community in our Brooklyn "village" - this is how Brooklynites in this area refer to our neighborhood - but also enjoy the cosmopolitan flair of the many different ethnicities who share this neighborhood.
