"Small road in a wealthier area"

Gus Siko Road in the City of Poughkeepsie is in one of the most well-to-do areas of town. It is in the general area of what used to be the Vassar Springside estate, and with all of its greenery, it's evident that the area is still higher-class.

Based on current real estate estimates, there's not a house on this road under $350,000, with a few climbing into the high 400s. No matter what, it's not going to come with a great deal of land, but some of these houses are quite large, with most at least three thousand square feet. It's a very verdant and peaceful neighborhood; there's a dead-end so no passing traffic, and you've got trees and green lawns. A map shows that you're close to Route 9, but I doubt you'd even know it around here. It's about a thousand feet away and the trees around this neighborhood insulate you fairly well. In fact, this is one of the most isolated streets in its neighborhood, so chances are you're not going to be bugged out here by much. It is quite possible, though, that you'll have neighbors and you'll be close enough to them to get to know them.

In the surrounding area, there are houses worth or selling for in excess of half a million dollars, which should tell you what kind of neighborhood this is. It's legitimately one of the nicest and most pleasant places in Poughkeepsie in which to live. As far as I know, it's also safe.

It won't take you many maneuvers to get out to Route 9 by car, and once you do, you're within 5-10 minutes of a wide variety of restaurants and big-box stores, and there are also hospitals and doctors' offices, schools, banks, churches, parks, and so much more. If you're into nightlife, some of the best bars and clubs in Poughkeepsie are within a similar drive from this street. From this neighborhood, you're a short drive from all of it.

Aside from it being a little pricey to live here, I can't associate any bad thoughts or comments with this neighborhood. It's a perfectly fine place in a great setting and you're close to just about everything you'll need without being right next to all the action. As neighborhoods go in Poughkeepsie, this one might not be perfect, but it's pretty close. I don't know who Gus Siko is, but he sure has a nice street named after him.
