"Not a lot of street with not a lot on it."

16th gets a little squirrely just before Stuy Town so there isn't really much to say about it . . . because there isn't much street. It stops at Stuyvesant Square which is a little park that doesn't have near the energy and crowd that Tompkins or Washington Square Park have and then picks up again only to be broken up yet again by the Stuy Town housing complex. Between the park and Stuy Town is a high school and Beth Israel Medical Center. So, the good news is that if something should happen to you, you are literally across the street from an ER. The bad news is that it makes this area really boring, unattractive and kind of sketchy late at night. The only people really around the square are people involved with the hospital and a few other stragglers because Stuy Town complex has it's own mini park for the residents.
When 16th is cut off again, it's literally cut off by the buildings. It's not the kind of cutoff that you can still walk through. And, the Stuy Town complex isn't exactly a hang out kind of place. The other side of Stuy Town where 16th picks back up just has FDR drive (which is basically a freeway) and the Hudson. So, if you're looking for something . . anything to do over here, you're going to be SOL. There isn't a single bar, restaurant, theatre . . . nothing. It's just housing and the end of the road. I think it makes the street scary at night and even kind of depressing during the day, so I wouldn't live here unless I was really attached to the Stuy Town units.
  • Lots of green
  • Huge apartments
  • sketchy at night
