"Wonderful family-oriented block, very safe and welcoming"

I have lived on this street for five years (on the prime strip between 4th and 5th Ave...it's a little less nice the further west of 4th Ave. you go), and I absolutely love it. There is a gifted elementary school at the corner and a police station across from that, so it is a very safe neighborhood. Very little crime, if any, especially compared to other parts of the neighborhood, like along the more industrial 3rd Avenue. The families along the block all know each other by name, and they'll look out for you. On a warm day everyone is out on their stoops chatting. The Green-Wood Cemetery forms the end of the block at 5th Avenue, and since all you can see from this area is a lush green forest, basically, all that means is that you get super-fresh air and beautiful views. Nearby Sunset Park is a lovely place to visit, with one of the best views in the city, and there is a ton of good Mexican food nearby.
