"More of a knob than a street"

Little Jefferson Street in the City of Poughkeepsie sure does live up to its name. It's very small indeed, going maybe a hundred feet or so. Surprisingly enough, there are several dwellings on this tiny city dead-end street.

One building is definitely an apartment building, while the others are either private, single-family homes or homes that rent out apartments. These properties are quite inexpensive; none are up for sale at the present time, but if they were, they wouldn't cost much. $150,000 would be pushing it. You won't get anything that's above modest here and you have no land whatsoever. You're downtown in the City of Poughkeepsie close to the bridge; there's no traffic on this particular street, because there's barely a street at all, but on surrounding roads, there is.

Back to the neighborhood itself, and in furthering the point about the home values: according to recent data, this is one of the more impoverished neighborhoods of Poughkeepsie. The average home value around here is only around $125,000. Further, and I mean this with no disrespect, there are nicer parts of town. It's definitely busy around here, the homes aren't as nice as in other neighborhoods, and there's not as much greenery (it's an urban area though, so take what you can get).

You're really not far from anything of importance here, so that's a plus. The seats of city and county government are very close, as are the hospitals, public transportation hubs, and some restaurants. The malls down in Poughkeepsie are accessible by public transport. The Walkway Over the Hudson and some other city parks are close to here as well. Finally, you've got some entertainment within a few blocks of here, with the Bardavon Theater and the Mid-Hudson Civic Center a short distance away on Market Street.

This neighborhood does have some things going for it, but the buildings are very densely-packed and it's in a busy area. Parking isn't the greatest, either.
