"Queens Midtown Expressway entrance"

There's no a whole lot to say about the Tunnel Entrance street other than it's exactly what it sounds like. It is right off of 1st Avenue around 36th and it's the street you take to get onto the Queens Midtown Expressway which provides access to both La Guardia and JFK as well as Long Island / the beaches. It can get pretty backed up but most of the time it's not ridiculously congested. It has a park on one side of it which I refer to as the saddest park in New York. It has got to be weird to try to enjoy a picnic or a softball game right next to a freeway entrance . . . so I guess that's why a lot of people don't go to this park.
You can't live on the Tunnel Approach street and even if you could, you definitely wouldn't want to. Streets around freeways always seem to have a drug den kind of feel to them in my opinion. It's great for getting out of Manhattan but is terrible to live around.
