Pardon my ignorance, but I am taking the 5 to Flatbush/Norstrand Avenue and wanted to know if it was a safe area. I have never been to this section of Brooklyn before and want to make sure it is ok to walk back to the subway in the evening. Thanks!

It's no less safe than any other part of Brooklyn.

It's not such a great area. However, I'm female and used to live in that area and walked to and from the train station at night.

Its the Junction. There used to be some dive Brooklyn College bar right there aptly called "The Junction Bar", Haven't been that way lately.

Thanks guys! I just want to go to pay my respects to the fallen police officer Russel Timoshenko. I think I am going to take the subway there and since it will be late, then cab it back to Penn, or at least into Manhattan.

Sorry if my post made you nervous. I used to go to that area by train (by myself) once or twice a week, and nothing ever happened to me. I was a 16-year-old boy, but I looked 12. You should be fine.

No worries---I made the trip and got back to the 2 within an hour. I am not usually so skiddish about the city...work there and LOVE it, but I am not familiar with Brooklyn and the 360 view I got from Hop Stop made it look terrible. Thanks again.

Haha--that's my stop. That's where I live and work.

I love how y'all seem apprehensive about it. re: For you Brooklynites
