"Schools and More Schools and the Park"

If you have kids and are looking for schools to place them in, you will find a lot of schools on W. 141st St. Nearly every block there is a school.

You will also see many apartment buildings in the area. W. 141st Street goes a long way. It is not a shortcut to another street. It goes a ways. But the highlight of the street is when it goes by the Hamilton Granger National Memorial. That alone is worth driving on the street.
Pros
  • Lots of schools for kids
  • Famous landmarks
Cons
  • Too many kids around during summer
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Singles
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees
  • Tourists
  • Gay & Lesbian
  • Hipsters
  • Students
  • Country Lovers
