"Little walk street"

Named for a church that is no longer there, Mount Carmel Place is a walk-only street that runs nearly two blocks between a little park and Bellevue Hospital. It's nice because there are no cars so it's much quieter than other Kips Bay streets, and the view of the park is nice. But, because the surrounding area is dominated by big apartment buildings and big hospital buildings, it's not exactly an idyllic walk. It's just ok in my opinion but cool because there are so few streets in New York where cars can't go. Another cool fact about this street is that it's so obscure that most maps don't even actually list it -- so you can tell all your New York buddies about it to one-up their knowledge . . .if you're into that sort of thing.

"Apartments near hospital"

Mt. Carmel Pl is a small loop near Bellevue Hospital. It is mostly apartments, which are fairly nice but it can be noisy due to all the ambulances and activity around the hospital. Overall it seemed to be a pleasant street to live on when I visited a friend there. There are quite a few trees along the street and a nice park, giving the place less of a concrete jungle feel. This would be a convenient area for an NYU med student or someone who worked at Bellevue to live in.
