"A Silverlake through-line."
Not lots of shopping or restaurants or bars on N. Virgil. Although it's a good street to drive on if you want to reach those places. There are a few schools along the road but I really don't think it's a street I would choose to live on. There are two lanes of traffic and it lacks a neighborhood sort of feeling. Having said that, the road is very smooth and pretty nice to drive on. Remember, Silverlake as a neighborhood is full of fun things to do, so even if this street isn't the greatest, it can give you access to everything else.
