Thoughts on living in Flatbush?

Some parts are really great! I lived in Ditmas Park for 2 years, and liked it. There are some lovely local businesses and restaurants around Courtelyou. The Victorian homes in that area give the neighborhood a lot of character. Plus, in the summer there are concerts on the porches given by local musicians who are truly world class. The downside of that area is that it’s pretty deep into BK, but if you are more established and aren’t looking for a party scene, the nabe is very lively! Also, depending on what part of Flatbush you’re in, the transportation options are limited. It was really difficult to visit friends who live in North BK or LIC. Generally, you get way more space for you money in that part of town, so it really depends on what you’re looking for.


Thanks so much!!!!! So helpful!

As someone who never plans/wants to get married or have kids, I know I’ll never get back the money I spent on my friends’ weddings, bachelor parties, kids birthdays etc. I know that and I was fine with it because they’re my friends.

Not cause I didn’t want to, but just ran out of time and honestly I don’t know what 8year olds are in to and I’ll just give the parents a gift cards later (cont)

Hi everyone. I just received an offer to jump to another consulting firm. As part of the hiring process this new company does a background check (employment and education) which they’ve stated should take about two weeks or less. I’m not worried about the background check since everything I’ve said is true. That said, when should I give notice to my current company? Ideally I’d like to leave as much time in between the end and start for rest and relaxation. What do you all think?
