"This is indeed a city street"

If you like city life you will love this street. It comes with all of the traffic and the noise and people walking up and down all through the day and night. It makes for a very exciting time, but I do not suggest it to retirees unless you are looking for more action than you had, not less. Great shopping and fun atmosphere.

"Suburban Life Can Be Found in Brooklyn"

Probably the loudest and most exciting block in Mill Basin, Strickland Avenue offers the best of suburbia and urban life. The noise level is just enough to keep things interesting without being annoying. There is a mini shopping mall similar to those in Long Island that offer dry cleaning, restaurants, luxury eyeglasses and apparel, etc.

The actual Strickland Avenue street offers a smooth, long, straight and wide road for drivers that choose to race. On a regular basis, one can watch quads and vintage cars amongst other vehicles race by.

Some of the most beautiful houses and most expensive cars are located in this neighborhood. Safety is not an issue as the neighborhood residents are all in contact with each other. For those that are skeptic, a neighborhood task force and police patrol the area.

Public transportation is available despite the location being secluded and private. There is an express bus that takes one to Manhattan and a local bus that takes one to a major train station.

Lastly, for those with children there is a well-maintained park with baseball fields, swings, swimming pool, toddler and children's playground, etc. There is also an exquisitely designed "assisted living" home for the elderly who require extra help.

AdamS Sounds like an almost perfect street LBinNY1. Fantastic review as well, very informative.

What's the deal with people wanting to race down your street though? Are these organized races or "street races"?
