Fort Greene is where the cool kids play these days, but it's already way overpriced, just like much of Brooklyn.
Prospect Heights is a little hyped, but i don't think there's anything "worthy" going on. Proximity to Prospect Park is nice, but it's still a lil rough around the edges.
Bed-Stuy is supposedly up and coming, but I can't really get past the fact that it's BED FUCKING STUY!
Avoid Bushwick. At all costs.
Deals can still be had Astoria. It's super close to NYC too, on a great subway line.
If your buddy is ballin', he prob afford something in Manhattan. Expect to pay up to 2k+ for a 1br/studio in a "desirable" 'hood. It prob won't be the nicest place either.
If he needs to live on the island of Manhattan and doesn't have baller dollaz, tell him to check out Washington Heights. It's waaaaaaaaaaay up there, but there are nice deals.
Sell me your Supreme Timberline Jacket in XL (Green or Brown).
