South Elliot Place in Brooklyn -safety and directions from Manhattan

by alex2678 Online Now Jan 14, 2005 at 10:35 AM

I might have a job interview coming up at South Elliot Place in Brooklyn. I was wondering what kind of area this is and if it is one of the safer or less than safe areas. Also, if I am coming from the port authority bus terminal in manhattan.(42nd street and 8th ave.), what subway do I take to get to this area of brooklyn. I have only taken one subway in my life. Anyway thanks for any help. Alex

    There are better areas and there are definitely worse areas too. You should be fine. Take the A or C train to Brooklyn from 42nd Street/Port Authority subway station. Then at Hoyt-Schmerhorn Street transfer to the G train going to Queens/Court Square. Take the G train to Fulton Street. South Elliott Place is a block east or two from the train station depending on which exit you get off of. Approximate travel time is over 1 hour depending on train conditions.
