"an island in a sea of noise"

i live on troy avenue. i think it is a great place to live. it's overall a safe place i've only came into trouble once for the past 18 years. they are plenty of places to eat though most are take out such as Chinese restaurants, grocery stores, super markets, and Caribbean restaurant. many of the residents are west Indian so the area is very diverse. they're are 4 hospitals around so if you ever had a heart attack you stand a good chance of surviving. so many hospitals does make the area a tad bit noisy though but it's something you get used to. overall this is a great place to live not much else since theirs no shopping centers around but, you are only 30 min from Manhattan.

"On East 44th Street"

East 44th Street is primarily a residential street, with some small businesses and shops. This neighborhood was lively and pretty. There wasn’t as much noise here as on the other streets, though this differs from Avenue to Avenue. This long street is very well accessible as there is a metro stop on nearly every avenue it runs through. In terms of food or fun, I don’t think you’ll be in luck here, but in terms of some nice housing options, you might be in luck. I liked this street, and think that the neighborhood has a lot to offer its residents as well as visitors.
