"In the Shadow of an Expressway"

N. Oxford Street is in the shadow of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, so you're close to the whizzing and whirring of cars at all hours of the day and night. It is a VERY busy interstate, connecting Brooklyn to Queens so it's not a very quite street. N. Oxford Street is in the Ft. Greene neighborhood, which up until a few years ago, was not a very desirable place to live. But thanks to a lot of urban renewal and special incentive programs, the residents of this neighborhood have cleaned up the streets and made it a fairly decent and accessible place for families. N. Oxford Street has a school on one side of the short street and there are brownstones and a few multi-unit apartments on the other side. There was a Chinese restaurant on one of the corners of the street, but they were only open sporadically. You really need to venture out of the immediate area for most services, but you can walk to Ft. Greene Park, which is maybe 15 minutes away. I wouldn't recommend this particular street to live on, but the neighborhood is convenient to Manhattan and other parts of the metropolitan area. Plus, it's coming "back" from what used to be a pretty rotten condition.
