"Just Like the Old Neighborhoods on Television"
Gleane Street is a part of my old neighborhood, and only a couple of blocks from where I grew up. Many elderly people live on this street, and most have owned their homes for many years. All the houses are extremely close together with small fenced in front yards, with parking in the alley behind the back or along the street in front of the houses. The overall spirit is friendly, and inviting. Children still ride their bikes down the sidewalks, and families barbecue on grills during the weekend. There are lots of block parties and garage sales during the summer months, and the people that live in this area are predominantly Caucasian, and Roman Catholic. Most of the children attend the neighborhood Catholic Schools making the families a very close knit community, with everyone knowing their next door neighbors. It is a great place to raise a family if you reside in New York City, or plan on moving their in the future. Also my Grand Parents still reside there.
