"Projects street"

Baruch Street isn't so much a street as a drive into Baruch Housing. Baruch Houses is a massive (the largest in Manhattan) public housing complex. The buildings hold about 2,200 apartments over quite a huge chunk of land. Because it's the lead in street to a housing project, there's nothing to really note on the street except for the projects. That's legitimately all there is to it. There are a number of trees on the street which is really rare in the Lower East Side. But, it's not exactly the kind of place you would want to hang out unless you had to. It can be really sketchy at night because there are no restaurants, bars or traffic . . and, it's just a quiet and sketchy street in general. I wouldn't recommend living on it . . or really even going on it unless you have to.

"Baruch Drive... me out!"

this street doesn't really have much in the way of sights, heck, it doesn't have much in the way of anything to tell you the truth. I wasn't really impressed with anything but its vicinity to the water and to more interesting places.

The Village: what a sweet location! Lots of trees, walking and calm. Like something from a 1920s film on New York City Life, score by a jazz saxophone in a minor key. this street is mainly residential and houses people from all walks of life. Baruch Drive is close to the following metro stations: 6 at Spring Street, F, J, M, Z at Essex St- Delancey St, and the J, M, Z at Bowery. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is moderate, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!
