"Small street in a sea of housing"

Lorie Lane in Poughkeepsie is a very short dead-end road off of Cedar Avenue. It only has about half a dozen or so houses directly attached to it, but it is surrounded by many others. Across the street is the Knightsbridge condo complex, next to it on the north is Fox Run's complex, and both behind it and to the south there are heavily-populated streets.

Cedar Avenue is a relatively well-traveled road, but Lorie Lane definitely is not. Traffic on this small street will not be an issue at all, but pulling out onto Cedar might at times be a challenge, as there are a lot of people living all around and they all have cars.

Even though there is a lot of housing around, it doesn't feel much like a city in this part of Poughkeepsie. In fact, a little further down Cedar Avenue heading into the Town of Poughkeepsie, you'll see an old barn. There aren't any office buildings or places that people would recognize as urban constructs around here, so it's perhaps quieter and greener than you'd expect to see elsewhere in the City of Poughkeepsie. Further, I've never had any reason to believe that this is an unsafe area in any way.

As for the homes on Lorie, many are shrouded in trees. None of them are overly flashy but I'd describe them as about what you'd expect in a typical urban/suburban, well-maintained American neighborhood. Home values are all similar, all estimated between $200,000 and $250,000. It's definitely a small neighborhood, but it seems like a pretty close one.

Spackenkill High School and some other private schools like Our Lady of Lourdes HS, St. Martin de Porres (PK-8) and Poughkeepsie Day School (PK-12) are only a few minutes away from here. Oakwood Friends School isn't far away, either; all of them are good. The restaurants on Route 9 and the City of Poughkeepsie are not far away, and neither are hospitals, doctor's offices, gyms, churches, day care centers, stores, or anything else you'd expect to find in the largest city in the region.

Lorie Lane might be a small street, but it definitely has a lot of points in its favor.
