"Convenient if You Choose the Right Block"
One end of of Chauncey Street is adjacent to train tracks and within spitting distance of a cemetery. That end of the street is also highly industrialized, so you definitely don't want to live on that part of the street. But if you travel down Chauncey Street, you will find that there are some nice homes and small businesses peppering both sides of the street. Chauncey Street is interrupted by a huge high-rise apartment complex, which looks to have about 20 massive buildings. It is supposed to be rent controlled, so getting an apartment here may be difficult, since no one likes to move out of a rent controlled unit. Schools and churches are close by, so if you are looking for a place to worship, you won't have to go far. There is ample transportation, with city buses running on the major adjacent thoroughfares and the subway line is a few blocks away. All in all, if you pick the right part of Chauncey Street, you will have very pleasant surroundings.
