"A Quiet Street that Runs Adjacent to the Railroad Tracks"
When you look out your front windows from parts of 99th Avenue in the Queens Village neighborhood of Queens, New York, you won't see your neighbor's house. You'll see a high fence which separates the street from the adjacent railroad tracks. This may be OK for some people, but I'm not real fond of living on top of train tracks. It appears that most of the people living in these modest single family homes are senior citizens. They're probably there because no one wants to buy a house that is so close to the train. If you travel up 99th Avenue a little farther, you will find some repair facilities and run down homes (I was not impressed with this part of 99th Avenue), but if you continue up the street for another half-mile or mile (and you will have to make a few zig zags to find the continuation of the street), you will find some very nice single and duplex style homes in a much more desirable area. The cross streets and avenues have lots of services, including some cute little mom-and-pop restaurants and luncheonettes. One of them even had egg creams on the menu! As long as you don't live near the railroad tracks, this is a decent street.
