"Lovely residential street"
I live a block away so I'm often on this street and know people who live here (in the area between 5th and 4th Aves.), and I would definitely recommend it. Now it's nothing fancy--no amazing brownstones, fancy stores or restaurants, or even a whole lot of action going on most of the time--but what it lacks in razzle-dazzle it makes up for in friendliness. People on the block are definitely friendlier than your average neighbors (that goes for the whole general neighborhood), and even though the traffic on 4th Avenue can be a little much at times, it's generally a very quiet place. In addition, there are lots of schools nearby, and they just renovated the C-Town supermarket on 25th st. and 4th (same block as the subway station), all pluses.
