"Nice Park with good facilities"

The length of Forsyth street in New York City borders the Sarah Roosevelt park on the western side, which is a long and narrow strip of green. The park offers tennis courts, a soccer field, and a running track. There’s quite a bit of shopping, good restaurants and access to public transportation in the area.

"I like it but I don't love it."

A street so close to the bridge is doomed from the start, in my opinion, but Forsyth Street has managed to hang onto some charm. There are a few interesting markets and stores but otherwise it's largely residential. It's proximity to the bridge can make for an interesting morning full of traffic however it isn't horrible enough to stay completely away from.

"Forsyth Street in the East Village"

Forsyth Street is a good place to live. I would recommend it for just about anyone. The lovely people, the convenient neighborhood, and the relative quiet came at quite a surprise on this stretch of cement. The Grotto looked like a good place to eat a more refined American meal and was reasonably patronaged by 7pm.

Forsyth Street is close to the following metro stations: 6 at Spring Street, F, J, M, Z at Essex St- Delancey St, and the J, M, Z at Bowery. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is moderate, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!
Uraniumfish Good grief, the street is in the Lower East Side, not the East Village!
