herkimer and nostrand

Hi -- Looking at an apartment on Herkimer Street between Nostrand and New York. I have a 1.5 year old girl. Love BedSty and have been looking for a while -- but not at all familiar with that part of the hood. Just want to check on drug/shooting activity -- have driven by day and night but only over a week. Need to make a decision quick so would really appreciate it. Have friends all over BedSty/Crown Heights but noone really knows this block. Any help much appreciated. I guess the answer I want is to the question -- would you raise your kids on this block -- why or why not -- with what caveats -- if any.

Many thanks,
