"New York Apartment Heaven"

25th Street is a busy and noisy street close to downtown Queens. There is a traffic light every few blocks, the street is very narrow, and cars line both sides of the street during daytime and evening hours with residential parking. The buildings consist mainly of two and three story apartment housing where the residences are as diversified as New York City itself. In between the apartment buildings are the typical New York Alleys, that are not safe to travel during late night hours. The driving in this area is not as conjested as in other parts of New York, and if you live in the area, it is one of the few places that you could own a car and get around without to much difficulty when heading out for shopping and other routine activities on a daily basis. If you are a student or a young adult just entering New York City's workforce, it is a good place to call home.

"A thruway of Astoria with small shops and most importantly, the hospital."

Crescent Street is a thruway of Astoria in that it is used by residents to quickly get across a major section of neighborhood down to Long Island City. What is great about the avenue is that where it intersects with 30th Avenue, Mount Sinai of Queens is located right there.

I wouldn't recommend Crescent Street to someone that wants pure quiet because of the constant traffic, but it is not that bad because all the amenities that lie there make up for it. Mount Carmel church is on Newtown Ave and Crescent Street for the Catholic population.
