The 50 Best Blocks in Brooklyn

17. Best Block for Accidental Voyeurism:
Grand Street

(between Driggs and Roebling, Williamsburg)
Locals will know exactly what we’re talking about: just next door to the bar Clem’s, there is a ground-floor apartment occupied by a fairly large family that believes neither in curtains nor dressing gowns, and can be found at all hours in various states of repose, under bright lights, on shiny couches, their intimate domesticity plainly visible to throngs of bargoers mere feet away. Just down the block, a signless old-school Latino beer-and-pool joint reveals itself in bright snatches of light spilled onto the sidewalk with each opening of its secret-feeling door, inviting envious gawks (man, it looks fun in there).
