"Another Weird Street- Sectional"

E. 142nd Street is another weird street. This one goes from Bruckner Expressway to Powers Avenue. There is another small section that goes from Willis Avenue to St. Annis Avenue.

From the Bruckner Expressway, there appears to be a junkyard or some kind of large industrial yard on one side of the street, and residential apartments on the other. Travel down a little ways, and after a couple of blocks there is a school. After the school zone ends, the street also ends. In order to continue on E. 142nd Street, you will need to get over to Willis Avenue since E. 142nd Street turns into a one-way street.

This part is made up mainly of Hispanics and Puerto Ricans. This section of E. 142nd Street is made up of nearly two long city blocks. Most of what is on this street are residential apartments. There are also a couple of parking lots.

Once you get past Brook Avenue there is the school district. There are a couple of schools along this route. When you pass the school district, there are a few residential buildings. Then you come to the Abraham House. After that, the street ends.
