Roads in Brooklyn, NY?

Anyone live around Broadway, Brooklyn NY? I have to go there tonight but my car is 1.4" lowered so I don't want to bring it down there. I will drive the Nissan Ultima instead . Any input is appreciated.

Drive your ultima instead, the road in NYC is alway pretty bad. There are so many pothole that even I don't want to go through with a suv.

Roads aren't that bad. As long as you're careful and you can judge distances, you'll be fine. Personally, I never understood how people scrape bumpers/lips/curb tires/etc. I've been driving for over 15 years and never once did any of those.

Just take it slow. I would be more worried about parking. If you're going to be doing street parking, take a beater car/another car. If it's just driving from point A to point B, take your good car.

Driving around NYC is like playing a game of Frogger. Just dodge those potholes and crazy cab drivers. I agree with the street parking though, you'll end up with an aneurysm worrying if you'll ever see your car in one piece or scratched the fuck up.

Yeah I had a Stroke and went into cardiac arrest when I had my e46 M3 and the front bumper was crushed in NYC.
