"Convenient, But Loud and Dirty"

This street is great if you need to take a train somewhere, or if you need to go to the post office. West 31st street is the southern border of Penn Station, and so has very easy access to the LIRR, New Jersey Transit, Regional and far travelling trains. This also means that there are always people around, and especially police officers. In front of Penn Station on this street is New York’s Central Post Office, which always has people sitting on the steps, even if they don’t need the services inside.

The downside to this street is that due to the heavy foot and cab traffic, it is not exactly clean, and during rush hour you usually have to also fight your way across the street vendors and their stands. This street really embodies the hustle and bustle of the city but does not take into consideration any sort of quiet for residents. This is a good area to live in the sense of convenient travel, but it is loud! Aside from just the noise of the crowds, there is a higher concentration of sirens, and all out brawls that waft up to the even the highest windows here.

"West 31st Street"

Yesterday was the Fourth of July, and I wanted barbecue. I was found when I went to Brother Jimmy's Barbecue. How delicious. I had one of the best burgers ever, and my friends shared a delicious platter of ribs. You can also order a 64 ounce margarita-like beverage for $20, so you can get filled and a little tipsy, if you so please. If you like the Knicks or Celine Dion, Madison Square Garden is directly across the street, and you can find anything you want in nearby Herald Square. In terms of living, this really isn't the place... lots of business space is currently available though.

Also, if you need a cheap way to get to DC, or even Florida, you can take the bus on this street!

West 31st Street is close to the following metro stations: A, C, E, L at 34th Street, Penn Station, 1,2,3 at 28th Street, an the B,D,F,N, J, R, N, W at 34th Street & Herald Square, 6 at 28th. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is heavy, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!
