"Nice Little Side Street - old fashioned - quaint"

SW Alexander is one of the side streets off of TV Highway. Its purely residential but only a block from a ton of fast food and sit down restaurants (Wendys, McDonalds, Taco Bell, Quiznos, KFC, Little Ceasars - to name a few). It used to be purely single family homes 'way back when' but in the past 5 years they have started putting in those tall ugly condos that sit about 10 in a line. Im not sure why there is so much building happening on this street and around it, because the prices of housing here is higher than what people are able/willing to pay.

Some of the single family homes have been turned into small, 'grass roots' type businesses. There is a jewelry/polished rock company, and a plant company along with a hairdresser and travel agency (altho neighborhood talk is that this one is going to become a montessori school instead).

SW Alexander technically goes all the way from the cross street of 209th to 170th BUT it gets cut in half by 185th and you cant drive all the way thru from one end of it to the other without hitting 185th at which point if you are coming FROM 170th and going TO 209th you have to make a right onto 185th then either do a u-turn or turn left onto SW Johnson, a left onto SW 187th and then a right back onto SW Alexander.

Its a nice street for walking even tho there is no sidewalk (just a very deep ditch, which in the winter isnt great for driving as the snow fills the ditch and its difficult to know where it is so you find yourself driving down the center of the road to be safe). There are still squirrels and birds all over the place so feels like country even tho it is so close to TV Highway and busy 185th.
