"Full of Heritage but a bit dicey."

Malcolm X Blvd is bursting with heritage. At it's southern tip it meets Central Park at it's northern most part. There are some architectural points of interest, however most of the street is lined with chain stores, convenience type shops and fast food locations. The buildings in certain parts are a bit run down looking and the entire area has a bit of a dicey feel to it, but it's very much alive and well. There are people out all the time and while there are some unsavory characters most of the residents are nice and friendly. While it wouldn't be my first or 15th choice for living arrangements it is not all bad and as you head closer to the park the area can get rather nice.
