"Schools, Stores, a Large Park, and a Whole Lot More"

W. 259th Street has it all. You will find stores in one area, a bunch of schools in another, and a large park at the end of the street that connects to Broadway.

To me, W. 259th Street has a busy side to it. One side is quiet, while one side is noisy with people coming and going. Kids are seen everywhere.

There are mainly single-family homes along with street. However, there are a few apartment buildings near the schools.
Pros
  • Plenty of stores
  • Nice looking park
Cons
  • Too busy at times
  • Too many people at times
