CROWN HEIGHTS — The results are in and it’s pretty clear: almost everybody knows Crown Heights begins … at Classon Avenue?
When we asked you to draw the borders of your neighborhood last month, hundreds responded with a map of their own.
Those who drew each map also reported how long they’ve lived in the three different neighborhoods, showing stark differences in the rapidly changing area.
According to those who reported having lived in Crown Heights for up to five years, the neighborhood solidly begins at Atlantic Avenue and ends at Empire Boulevard, with Classon and Utica avenues as the western and eastern borders.
But for Crown Heights residents who have lived in the area for 10 to 20 years, the neighborhood is much smaller — from Sterling Place to Empire, with Rogers and Utica on either side.
