"Commercial In One Area and Residential in Another"

E. 129th St contains different elements. From Lexington Ave to Park Ave, MS Houses make up one side of the street, and commercial as well as residential buildings on the other side. Addie May Collins Community building is also located here, next to a residential and commercial establishment. The residential and commercial establishment has a gate attached to the parking lot, so the only way in is if you have the combination.

if you travel further toward Lexington, there are a bunch of trees on each side, with what looks like a school on one side. After you go past Park Ave, there is construction along the way, that shortens the street for a few blocks.
Pros
  • A mixed bag
  • Gather places for people
Cons
  • Some area are not great looking
