"Decent urban street"

Grubb Street is deep inside the City of Poughkeepsie, intersecting Worrall Avenue and South Grand Avenue.

The houses on Grubb and in the neighborhood in general are packed together very closely. Sometimes you expect to drive down the street in cities and see some homes that are a little run-down but that's not really the case here. Actually, even though the homes are a little bit the type you'd expect to see in New York City (high, narrow, and long), some are rather nice. Most of the estimated home values are a little under $200,000, though some come over that mark. Keep in mind that if you end up purchasing a property on Grubb, you will be doing it with the expectation of having next to no land. That's just how it goes in a city.

With regards to the overall area, recent data suggests that it's about average as far as home values go in Poughkeepsie. It's not a low-income area, nor is it a higher-income area like around Springside near Vassar Hospital. Definitely more average. Still, there are plenty of trees around and they keep the streets up well. Further, it's a big neighborhood with all of the houses around. You will probably have a lot of neighbors here.

It's in the City of Poughkeepsie, after all, so you're close to most everything, because Poughkeepsie now has most everything. Restaurants, schools, shopping, public transportation, banks, and much more aren't far from here. Vassar College isn't that far away, neither are Poughkeepsie Middle or High Schools, or the restaurants and shops on Main Street and Raymond Avenue, and that's just for starters. You're not smack in the center of Poughkeepsie, but you're close enough to be able to get around to places. Even just by walking a few blocks, you can accomplish a lot as far as visiting local amenities.

Of course, living in a city does have its drawbacks. While Grubb Street isn't necessarily busy, a number of the roads around it are. It might not be the quietest place you ever live and with the houses being so close together, privacy might take a slight hit. In better news, parking is alright here, and most houses have driveways leading behind their homes.

I don't have anything particularly negative to say about Grubb Street. I've driven through here a number of times and honestly, it's not that bad of a neighborhood. You could do worse.
