"Charles Lane is at the Edge of the Village and Close to the Greenway"
Charles Lane is a short street that is mixed use, meaning there are some warehouse and storage facilities as well as apartments and condos. This makes the apartments less expensive than living closer in to the Village area. However, the rents are not cheap here, even if they are a few blocks away from the more "hip" area of the Village. This street does not have a lot of traffic, which is unique for New York City, but that's because it can't be used as a short cut. The people living here look out for one another, which is nice. You are about a 10-15 minute walk to the subway and there are bus lines that can take you uptown or downtown. You can find shopping and eateries on Washington Street and Christoper Street. All in all, this is a a decent street that has a lot of possibilities.
