I was originally raised in Brooklyn and absolutely loved living in the borough. But everybody who lives in Brooklyn loves Brooklyn and has fond memories of Brooklyn. Well decided to ask an AI, “What are the Worst Things About Living in Brooklyn”?

Brooklyn is one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the United States. Known for its iconic bridges, hip neighborhoods, and bustling streets, Brooklyn has been a cultural hub for artists and creatives alike. However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows in the city that never sleeps

1. High Cost of Living

Brooklyn is not for the faint of wallet. The cost of living in Brooklyn is notoriously high, with rent prices and expenses skyrocketing in recent years. If you’re looking to move to Brooklyn, you better have a plan to make bank, or else you’ll end up living in a cardboard box under the Manhattan Bridge.

2. Gentrification

If you’re not familiar with the term “gentrification,” it’s when hipsters move into a neighborhood and make it cool, which leads to an increase in rent prices, displacement of longtime residents, and a loss of cultural identity. Brooklyn has undergone gentrification in many of its neighborhoods, leaving some locals feeling alienated and marginalized. I mean, I know some neighbors that have changed like the weather.

3. Overcrowding

With a population of over 2.5 million people, Brooklyn can feel like a sardine can at times. During rush hour, the streets and subways are packed to the brim, and it can be a challenge to find a moment of peace and quiet. So, if you’re looking for solitude and space, Brooklyn might not be the place for you.  Now we’re building skyscrapers everywhere.

4. Noise Pollution

Brooklyn is a city that never sleeps, which means there’s always something going on. Unfortunately, that also means there’s always a lot of noise pollution. Whether it’s honking cars, loud music, or screaming children, you can forget about getting a good night’s sleep. Ok, here I don’t think it’s so bad.

5. Limited Parking

If you have a car in Brooklyn, you’re in for a world of hurt. Parking is notoriously difficult to find, and if you do find a spot, you’ll likely have to move your car every few hours to avoid getting a ticket. Save yourself the headache and stick to public transportation. Ummm, ever hear of Bay Ridge?

6. Commute Times

Depending on where you work, commute times in and out of Brooklyn can be brutal. If you’re traveling during rush hour, you can expect to spend a significant amount of time in traffic or on a packed subway car. Plus, delays and disruptions are not uncommon, which can add even more time to your commute. Terrible if you’re in a Two Fare zone like Marine Park, possibly do-able if you’re in Bay Ridge.

7. Crime

While overall crime rates in Brooklyn have decreased in recent years, some neighborhoods still have higher crime rates than others. If you’re not familiar with the area, it’s important to do your research and take necessary precautions to ensure your safety.

8. Limited Green Space

While there are some parks in Brooklyn, the city can feel lacking in green space compared to other cities. If you’re looking for a relaxing escape from the concrete jungle, you might have to venture out of the city to find it.

9. Public Transportation Delays

The subway system in Brooklyn can experience delays and disruptions, leading to frustration and inconvenience for commuters. Whether it’s a signal issue, track maintenance, or an overcrowded train, you can expect to encounter some hiccups during your commute.

10. Polluted Air

Brooklyn is known for having parks too. So this feels like a stretch.
