"Parts of this Street are Ho-Hum and Boring"

I'm familiar with chunks of 150th Street and had an aunt who lived on the section between Willets Point Blvd. and Bayside Avenue. It's a friendly neighborhood, but rather boring and ho-hum. Not much has changed in the years since she lived there. Many of the same families inhabit the homes on her block and there has not been much retail development, so it is fairly stable. That's good and bad at the same time, since it almost feels as if time has stopped when on this street! At one end of 150th Street, you dump right into Queens College. Another part of the street runs into Kissena Park. The problem with 150th Street is that it is dissected by other streets or parks, and the massive Long Island Expressway. Each section of 150th Street is its own neighborhood, but generally speaking, there isn't anything extraordinary about it, unless you happen to live there and attend Queens College. Then you can walk to class!
