"Commercial, Commercial, and more Commercial"

Everywhere you drive on W. 170th Street, the most of what you run into are commercial establishments. This means you will find delis, fast food places, and other convenience stores. There is housing around the area, but not as much as you would find on other streets. West 170th Street is more of a commercial zone than residential.

I also remember spotting a school zone along the way. So kids may like the area for that purpose.
  • Plenty of stores
  • Too many cars around

"Room for investment"

Since the housing crisis has developed this area of New York while still in good shape has room for investment. The prices are low and the variable costs are also very low. Everything you need is close bye and I would not be surprised if I bought a couple houses on and off this road. Everything is in good condition, while still old fashioned, and not a scene of crime to be found.
