Opinion on this area in Williamsburg, Brooklyn?

Hi, I will be staying around the intersection of Ainslie and Leonard Streets in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Can someone tell me what the area is like? Safe?

Thanks much.

*To answer your question* From what I've heard, the area is very safe. Ainslie is a mostly-residential block surrounded by neighborhood bars and restaurants. Hopefully a Brooklyn resident can weigh in.

You will be in the heart of old Italian Williamsburg. Assuming your accommodation is legal you have nothing to worry about. I had a great brunch at Sel de Mer on Graham near Conselyea recently.
