"Busy but oddly isolated street"
Crystal is a two-way street with many lights at intersections, making it a main thoroughfare and more busy than other streets. Still, it doesn't get the same kind of traffic you see on nearby Watchogue or Willowbrook for some reason. It's a typically pretty suburban street, but with easy access to busy stores near where it intersects with Forest Ave (banks, CVS, gym, Staples, Petsmart, in addition to a large strip mall). Also a good way to get to the public library branch on Victory Blvd, and there's a Lutheran church and the Holy Family Catholic church very close by, which are a good source of community fairs & festivals.
