"Quiet street - very quiet"

This street is lined with brick apartment buildings and fitness clubs, and it’s pretty residential (as opposed to tourist-y). If you’re looking for restaurants in the area, it’s best to head over to the intersecting avenues – because there really isn’t much to say about this street as far as tourist commodities are concerned.

"Boring and residential, with tons of blockages"

I’ve lived on 63rd Street for two years, and so have often been in the neighborhood and seen what 62nd has to offer. Unfortunately, it’s not a lot. On the east side of the street, it’s very residential, though of course if you turn down Broadway or Columbus you’ll find plenty of stores and restaurants close by. When you reach Columbus, you hit Lincoln Center on the north side and more residences on the south side. At Amsterdam, 62nd doesn’t go through due to the large low-income housing project, but the street does continue at West End Avenue… to a dead end. The only good thing about 62nd Street is Western Beef, the awesomely inexpensive grocery store on the corner of West End Ave.

"Nice area, good movies"

whenever I am around this area, I always walk by the theater on 62nd street and Broadway to see what they are showing. It is usually an eclectic mix of undercurrent movies that usually end up being fantastic to watch. This area is usually quiet at night, and thus a movie on 62nd street is usually a good choice for a night in midtown. the street itself, outside of Broadway, is fairly quiet and mostly residential. It is a nice area to live in because it is very convenient; it is near the subway and there are a lot of things to do there. There are some nice restaurants too, it is a fun place to visit.
