"Lots of Hospital Residents Call this Street Home"
89th Street is a place I lived for three years across from St. Anthony's Hospital. It is an extremely busy street and the sounds of sirens, vehicles, and the blare of honking horns, are a part of every day life at any given hour. Pedestrians walk this area constantly, both day and night, either on there way to work, or during night time hours, on there way to one of the many all night clubs just a few blocks away. There is a small enclosure behind the hospital where much of the staff gather during break, especially in the summer to play a quick game of basketball, or just to hang out and chat with coworkers in between their shifts. The street is covered with high rise apartments, and a few old warehouses, that have been converted into condominiums, and swank lodgings covering the whole top area of one building. It is not uncommon to see people walking down the street with a basket of laundry in tow, or a random individual walking there dog with children tagging along. It is a nice place for a young adult to start out, when working and living in Queens Village, New York. I loved it there.
