"Convenient City Living Close to the Water"
Marine Avenue is a wide street that runs between busy Ft. Hamilton Parkway and ends at 92nd Street. It's a nice address to have (wouldn't you like to live on Marine Avenue?) and if you are lucky enough to find a vacant apartment here, it will most likely be in a mid-rise apartment building (4 to 6 stories), although there are a number of private homes that are located on this street. Marine Avenue is only about one long block from Shore Parkway, which is the major interstate that runs from Queens to Brooklyn and around the borough, so you have good vehicular access to and from the area. Plus, you are adjacent to the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, that goes into Staten Island. Marine Avenue is also close to the water and some of the little parks and trails that are built alongside it. Ft. Hamilton Park is also close by. There are no commercial services per se on Marine Avenue, but you have lots of restaurants, grocery stores, laundromats, dentists and specialty shops on the intersecting streets and avenues, especially 3rd and 4th Avenues. Marine Avenue is a healthy and vibrant street in a thriving and accessible neighborhood. Living in this area definitely has its perks.
