"The bridge street"

York is only a block long before turning into Sutton Place. It's funny because it's an Avenue but not a very impressive one being so tiny and uneventful. There's really nothing to talk about in regards to York. The Queensboro Bridge dominates York and you can't really live on the street until it becomes Sutton.
The Queensboro bridge, however, really is lovely so the street isn't entirely a loss (how else would you get on the bridge). And, as far as streets go with a bridge opening, York is by far the prettiest and cleanest. Another cool thing about York is that there's a little park with a baseball diamond right underneath the bridge on this street which is a nice, unexpected bit of green in a very city-like neighborhood. There's also a nice stretch of sitting area on the street that looks out onto the bridge and the East River. No matter what time of year it is, it's an unreal view. It's exactly what you would think it would look like when it's described in the Great Gatsby.
  • Nice for a bridge street
  • Little park
  • Can't really live on it
