"Simple residential side street"

Kirchner Avenue in Hyde Park is a side street which branches off of Route 9. Driving down it, you'll see a fairly simple road with some houses bunched closely together, some trees, and some grassy lawns. If that sounds generic, it is, because that's the word I think of when I consider Kirchner Avenue.

Hyde Park isn't a terribly unpopulated town, so there are things to do in the nearby area. All one needs to do is hop on Route 9 and drive south for a few miles to see some restaurants, places to shop, places for medical care, parks, gyms, schools, and more. Everything you need is close enough, just not here.

It seems like it's at least a relatively pleasant neighborhood with some friendly people, but it's not really the tree-lined sort of street I'm used to seeing around here. Furthermore, as mentioned, the lot sizes are pretty small here so houses are practically on top of one another. If you're looking for some silver lining on that, perhaps neighborly togetherness is improved here as opposed to other locales where homes are much more spread out. The bad news is your backyard almost certainly won't be that big and I haven't seen a lot of swimming pools in them, if that sort of thing interests you.

In driving down Kirchner, I can't really assign any positive or negative characteristics to it. To me, it's just a street, albeit one that doesn't leave me with a particularly bad impression. The homes are nice enough and the neighborhood at large isn't a bad place to live.
