    I know we've only had the site since SEPT2010..
    but any reviews/info about interfaith?

    (i.e. hours, comments on attendings, neighborhood safety, etc..)

    I heard from a doctor who had a residency interview there that the hospital is in the ghetto. In fact he said when he was coming out of his interview all of a sudden some police officers ran up along side of him and he looked up and realzied he was in the middle of a shoot out. He said inside the hospital it looks ok, but the quarters where the residents/students sleep when on call look shabby and they're just composed of metal bunk beds with a thin mattress on top.

    yea interfaith is located in bedford/stuyvesant..
    the cultural portrayal of the area is.. well..
    'do or die bed/stuy', 'bullets fly in bed/stuy', etc..
    but i did want some more first hand info of students that rotated there..
    anyone else?

    I live in Bed Stuy too. Yea, biggie, Jay Z and Chris Rock all came out of some projects down the street but it's changed alot over the past ten years. It's not horrible but it's also not Park Slope. I've heard of more students having problems being mugged/jumped in the area surrounding Wyckoff.

    How long did you or have you lived in the area. I start IM soon, was wondering how the area was, keep hearing how bad it is. Just wondering if its safe enough to walk from the train to the hospital? Just wondering how that area is? Thanks!
