"not much to find"

There's several small establishments and the police precinct here. There are also several tenement houses and teenagers/young adults looking for things to do (mostly during the nighttime). I personally haven't spent much time here other than to walk to East Broadway. You can easily access the rest of the Lower East Side as well.

"I give it credit for being nearby to a great scene"

Well, it’s home to the police precinct - so if you live nearby you can feel extra safe. Pitt Street seems a bit further east of the rest of the neighborhood, but it’s a short walk from all of the nightlife that the Lower East Side has to offer. It’s the typical LES affair: former tenement housing lines the streets, restaurants are packed in, and twenty-somethings prowl for alcohol late nights.

"Not my favorite by a long shot."

Pitt Street is forgettable at best much of it's former glory has been gone for decades and large housing towers have very little charm and appeal and the small businesses that reside on the street are largely for residential use. There is nothing dragging tourists to Pit street and while it does offer some convenience there is so little going on a potential resident would be better off looking elsewhere
