"Typical street in a small city"

Lincoln Avenue in the City of Poughkeepsie runs parallel to Route 9, very near to Vassar Brothers Hospital.

Coming down this street from north to south (Jefferson Street changes its name to Lincoln Avenue), you'll see Vassar Hospital's complex at the end but also houses on both sides, as well as a decent city park to the left. It's a city, after all, so the homes tend to be somewhat small and closely-packed, though many actually appear to be small apartment buildings as opposed to houses. The quality isn't the greatest for some of them, but again, it's a city, and sometimes that happens. The home values are generally not very high, partly because the lots on which they exist tend to be very small. The vast majority are under $200,000, with some well under that. It won't be massively expensive to get a home here, relative to other areas in Dutchess County. For those who prefer apartments, you will be able to find at least a few rental opportunities around here as well.

Generally speaking, there are better areas of the City of Poughkeepsie in which to live. Driving through here, I've always found the neighborhood to be a bit unappealing, with some houses and buildings that aren't always kept up as well as others and the dwellings just too close together at some points. It's also a little plain-looking. This appears to be a low to average-income neighborhood from the outside. Further, it is kind of busy, as this road connects Route 44/55 and the hospital, and people come through here to get to Route 9 and the hospital.

Aside from obvious proximity to the hospital and the park, being in the city, you are close to things. Public transportation, local restaurants, banks, offices, churches, and many things of that nature are all around here. There are also day cares and schools in the vicinity, and Lincoln Avenue also isn't terribly far from the center of the city.

While this may not be my favorite part of town, there is some level of convenience associated with living here.
