"Terrible intersection for sight seeing"

This part of Fresh Pond road isn’t very picturesque. The intersection of Fresh Pond and Metropolitan is ugly and designed for the car, not the pedestrian. You can really feel the transition from Brooklyn to Queens because of this. Anyway, at this intersection you are equidistant from two M subway stops; one down each road. There is also a butcher shop with a giant pig on the side a little ways down Fresh Pond, called Karl Ehmer quality meat, which is worth a photo.

"Nice, Cute, and Convenient"

I have heard many people say that outside of Manhattan, the borroughs all look essentially the same: a main street an then blocks upon blocks of strangely named residential streets. If this is the case, then Fresh Pond Road is a nice example of a convenient street in Queens. Branching off form the aptly located M train (connecting to the L for those wanting to get into Manhattan's mid-section), it boasts quite a few delis, convenience stores, clothing stores, liquor stores, and even a florist. A stroll down this street, during the day, is also not so bad as there are many places to look at and always a friendly face.It is nice to walk here, and if you happen to live around here, it is a great little main street to live by. you don't really have to worry about having to travel far into the city for what you need, because Fresh Pond Road definitely will have it somewhere. One downturn for those who want to take the M train is that it does tend to run erratically on weekends, so sometimes maybe considering to buses is a better bet!

"Fresh Pond Road"

This was a convenient street, with several small business including a bank and a florist. Th nearest subway station was the M at Metropolitan Avenue. I liked this street and its proximity to others as well as the vibe. I think that it was a good street for anyone looking to live near where the "action" happens.
