"Depressing run of the street"

There are an awful lot of car dealerships on the Hudson in this area, and 51st is no exception. There's a Jeep Chrysler dealership right at 12th which I think is just such an eyesore for a neighborhood. And, this neighborhood needs all the help it can get so another auto dealer does not help. The area surrounding the dealership looks like a wasteland and it's pretty scary at night because no one is around. There's a public high school and a few apartment buildings at 11th but nothing noteworthy as far as architecture. I think it would be extra creepy to go to high school right here. What if you got out of study hall after dark? There are people out in this part of town at night but because there aren't any bars or restaurants, there's just no sort of energy on the street. The next block is just a church and a few more depressing apartment buildings. And, at 9th there's really nothing but a Howard Johnson. Why do people want to live on this street? They had better have gotten a sweet deal on their apartment because that's the only reason I can see for moving here.
