Crown Heights North

Up Washington street and across Bergen from my place to a friend's house.   Washington is actually a great street to bike on - probably my favorite North-South route through Brooklyn.   Walking is fairly nondescript - a stray sushi joint or fancy bistro among the Jamaican take-out places shows how this area is going.   As does the Thursday night Karaoke scene at the Starlight Lounge: Brooklyn's oldest non-discriminating (that means gay), black-owned bar in the hood is now also frequented by a handful of both queer and not-so-queer white, hipsterish folks (myself included) in addition to the middle-aged regulars.   I sing Madonna and take bets on how long it'll be before you don't have to get buzzed in anymore. 

Neighborhood: Crown Heights North.  Tracts Walked: B219, B221, B315

  1. I am trying to figure out what census tracts are considered Crown Heights. Any help on this?
