246 Johnson is a block from the Montrose Avenue L stop and 10 blocks from the Flushing Avenue J, M, and Z stop. It's not going to be pretty, but the J and M station will come in handy when the L train shutdown starts in April 2019. There are also lots of restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, and venues within walking distance.
