"Really busy street with little to offer"

FDR Drive is not a street I would recommend living on. FDR is a major thoroughfare on the outside of the city. People fly down up and down this thing like it's a freeway. And the buildings on the west side of the street kind of all look like they're on the side of a freeway. The view is nice, but it's kind of dangerous in a number of ways. For one, if you have kids, you live on an extremely busy street. And, two because there are no bars, cafes, restaurants . . anything, it's pretty sketchy at night because there are no people walking around. I'm not a fan.
There are a few little things FDR that are nice. One of them is the East River view. It's not as pretty as the Hudson but a water view is a water view. And, there's actually a little beach right at 23rd where Swim the Apple sponsors day and night swims in the East River. I think the East River is way too disgusting to swim in, but some people seem to really like it. There's also a park running quite a ways down the East River that has all kinds of activities like movies, art shows and a little league baseball diamond. I prefer the West Side and I wouldn't live on this street but living around it isn't so bad.
