"Of houses and parking lots"

Croydon Court in the City of Poughkeepsie a very small cross-street that runs near Route 9G (Parker Avenue). On one side, it's two (maybe three) houses, and on the other, it's two parking lots. Of those two or three houses, I'm not sure any are technically on Croydon, with at least two oriented towards the connecting streets. Perhaps what I thought was a house was just a large garage, but it's too late to check now.

Since it's such a short road, it's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of place when driving down it. You'll notice both the houses and the parking lots, though perhaps the lots stand out a little more. If you're wondering what they're for, it's not municipal parking: the Dutchess County Aging Office is on the other side as well. One is the loneliest number, after all, so there will be plenty of street-side parking for you if you're the lucky person who gets to live on this street. That parking lot does exit out onto Croydon, though, so with all of those folks going in and out it can get a little busy.

Back to the subject of the homes here and on adjacent streets, they're definitely affordable. $150,000 is on the high-end of what you might find here, and there's obviously no land for these homeowners. Houses are pretty close-together as well.

The entry to the Walkway Over the Hudson is a few blocks away from here. Malcolm X Park, a Baptist church, and an elementary school are very close to this mostly-unpopulated street as well. Nothing is truly far away in the City of Poughkeepsie, though. Public transportation runs all throughout the city, but I'd still recommend a car to get around to the restaurants, doctors, shopping centers, gyms, and more. You're probably no more than 5-10 minutes from being well covered in all of the above categories.

This doesn't appear to be a particularly well-to-do neighborhood when driving through. The houses are in okay shape, but driving through I kind of get a blah feeling. I didn't feel anything particularly vibrant; it's just an average city block.
