"Fox Street: Famous for its doctors' offices"

Fox Street in the City of Poughkeepsie is a short roadway intersecting Route 9 south of the Mid-Hudson Bridge. It is very close to Vassar Brothers Hospital, one of the best hospitals in the area. As you might find at any medical center, there are a number of specialist offices around it, and for this hospital, many doctors are located on Fox Street.

If going north/east on Fox, you will see several buildings, almost all of which contain medical practices. Down at the other end heading towards the river, there is a hair salon.

This is a relatively green area and doesn't feel too urban, despite being right near an active highway. The problem with Fox Street is that I'm not sure there are more than a private homes or apartments here. It's a small number to be certain, however many it is. It's kind of hard to have a neighborhood when there's almost nobody living there. If there are more than a few places to live, the fact that the doctors' offices bring in so much traffic (and having the hospital a block away) would probably be a bit annoying.

There just aren't too many places to live on Fox Street, so I wouldn't worry about it.
