I'm thinking of moving into an apartment in 2025 Regent Place, in Flatbush, Brooklyn. I'm a 20-something white female who works late twice a week and would be walking home by myself from the subway. I have no problem being the minority in a neighborhood--it has been the case for me in almost every neighborhood I've lived in since graduating college.

Last night I googled Regent Place and found that it was listed as one of the most dangerous places in Brooklyn on some forum. Is that true? Does anyone know anything about 2025 Regent specifically?

Please help!
Thank you!

Silly! If you hear that the place is dangerous and it's from a reputable source (one would hope), why would you be here asking if it is safe? Are you seeking people to cosign on a possibly life-altering decision? Even if you're focusing on a particular place, is there a barrier of protection around it separating it from the rest of the bad? Find somewhere more secure like Park Slope or Brooklyn Heights.

i grew up in 2025 regent place. back then, for me,it was great. We protected each other. If you fucked with someone from the block, it was a rap. I will always love regent forever. but if you didn't grow up there,then i suggest that you don't move there.

i use to live in regent place, but i moved out a year ago after i was jumped real bad coming from work at 3:00 AM. what i remember from that nieghborhood was the amount of drugs and shootings there was. in the summertime the nieghborhood gets real bad at night. there lots of thugs hagin out side. i visited the nieghborhood 2 days ago and it still looks the same. i recomend not to move there.

I us eto live in 2025 regent place apt B1 2n floor
right above lobby front entrance. huge 3 bed room apt. to bad an asian kid came to deliver chinese
food, he was robbed and they blew his brains out. my family had to see his grey matter splattered all over the wall just outside my apt. the lobby was a weed spot. this was yrs ago dont know how it is now. sry for the dramatics but, this was a true story and no one in their right mind would deliver food there after what happened.

PS: ur a white female dont even think about it. cause i would fear for ur life. back then anyways.

If you're not from there then don't move there. It's that kind of place. No one has any love for you. They didn't grow up with you; there is no respect or loyalty to you. If you're white you would epitomize gentrifcation. However you would also be temporary because you could be easily scared away. This is the reason why your apt would get robbed especially if you're in a walk up. It would be a quick and easy task. Take their crap and watch them run.

Regent Place Is A Piece Of Shit Regent is a place where people stab you in the back for fun. I've grown up there all my life and i love my friends over there thats why i go there now because i moved away back in 07' my friends are there but trust no one your girl are in danger because there are alot of rapists over there and thats an aids related area. The Boys are wannabe players and gangsters and the girls around there are slut bags except for some.
