"Quiet in the middle of the city"

85th avenue is a nice little crosstown road in Queens that cuts through residential and commercial, and is actually a fairly easy and nice drive usually. It acts a connector between Metropolitan Ave and Myrtle Ave (near fores park). The area has an old New York feel and is heavily covered by beautiful old trees.

"residental street as depicted in shows"

85th Ave is two blocks off the bustling Jamaica Ave. So its a small walk to all nearby trains, buses, and shopping. Being that the food itself is on Jamaica ave the choice and quaity of food isnt the greatest. 85th ave is lined with several early childhood schools and parks. Its very residential and low on noise. Many neighbors know each other and wives jog together. A street where kids can play on and off the street without fear of a speeding car coming towards them.
