I live in Fort Greene near the Dekalb Avenue station. Love the neighborhood but will likely be a bit longer commute depending on exactly where you’re going / if your destination is on the Q/B (good) or not (less good)

Downtown

Williamsburg has some great new buildings near the L. L runs fine during the week

Where downtown are you talking op? Lots of parts of downtown are more than 15 min from each other - and most are within 15 min of diff parts of BK

Sorry ..I meant downtown Manhattan ie FiDi. So any neighborhood that's no more than 15 minutes to FiDi by subway. Downtown BK is an option -- Any new building recommendations? Is BK heights expensive?

+1 for the Avalon Fort Greene. There are a handful of slightly cheaper options in Downtown Brooklyn (eg Ava DoBro) but the slight premium to be on the other side of Flatbush is, IMO, totally worth it

I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
