"The Roar of the Subway will Drive you Nuts"

Livonia Avenue is home to an elevated subway line, a lot of high rise apartment buildings and smaller, poorly-maintained tenements. If you're the type of person who likes to roll out of bed and hop on the train to get to work, living on Livonia Avenue is for you, since the train is right outside your door. But don't expect peace and quiet, since you will have the rumble of the train both day and night. Although there are some mom-and-pop type commercial establishments on Livonia Avenue which will suffice if you need some bread, milk or other staples, you will most likely want to do your major shopping elsewhere. The same goes for entertainment and eating out. You will NOT have a romantic, candlelit dinner anywhere on Livonia Avenue, unless there's a blackout in New York City that cuts off electricity to the trains! Rents here are fairly low because of the atmosphere, but people do learn to live with and even love the sound of the trains.
