"57th Street,Quiet and peaceful and good folks."

Generally on this street it will take you off the beaten path. This is a nice quiet and good people neighborhood. People are nice and some well to be desired in people skills lol. This street runs in a zig zag in away. It cuts off on New York Avenue and goes to Hickman road then you have to go around to a few other streets to get to the other side of 57th. Homes are nice and people are great. There are schools in the area and good ones, kids allot of them if you have a family this is the place to raise kids here in Des Moines. I am from the Midwest but did live in the Southwest for 26yrs to say. I love being back here as this is the place i wanted to raise my kids. It is friendly and not allot of noise down this street at all.

Bus for kids to school and local bakery near by us as well as parks, hair dressers and church and more. I love it here and would say to anyone who asked to visit here specially in the spring and summer time. Also the best time is fall ohhh my it is beautiful up here. Yes cool in the winter lol but hey we all have to deal with weather some where some how.
