(Please note this is based on my personal opinions)

2. Purple Outline-These are the areas that are still nice, but a bit more affordable.
-Bed-stuy/Clinton Hill Border (not as safe east of Nostrand Ave)
-Prospect Park South
-South Slope/Park Slope South
3. Orange and yellow outline-Not as many young people live here, you would want to be cautious walking.

-Coney Island/Brighton Beach (very well known for Russian mafia, ok to visit for tourist attractions, but be very cautious)
-East New York
