"The Energy of Caribbean Migrants"

caribbean migrants from the dominican republic with energy and optimism, like a cup of strong espresso, adventurous yuppies and artistic types, orthodox jews, and panaramic views of the palisades, beautiful fort tryon park, but heavy traffic and poor men driving rich men's cars at rapid fire pace. if you are concerned about noise, drug vending, and the like, stay west of broadway, especially above w. 181st street, or you'll be really menaced. upper middle classed folks are found on pinehurst avenue, even! A train and #1 trains can be nightmarish, especially during the rush hours and after 11PM. anyone who has a car and is willing to pay for a parking lot or garage is definately blessed bigtime.
  • Great energy, Quasi-Republican Mentality
  • Friendly and lively people
  • Inexpensive rentals
  • Too congested at times

"eclectic block"

all types reside on this block from struggling welfare recipients to multi-millionaires. the area is also ethnically mixed with egyptians, caucasians, hispanics, and blacks. it's absolutely quiet at night-a hick town in a geographically urban area. it is also surprisingly affordable due to the fact that it is not as convenient as its neighbors to the direct north.
