On my alternate route home, I often pass this house that is along Irving Park Rd somewhere west of Harlem. While it is along an alley I don't think it encounters the same issues that a similar house in the city would (graffiti, garbage). It would probably be an advantage to live there if you had children. They have a big parkway they could play in that is within eyesight of the house. You'd just have to make sure they had enough sense and discipline to not go into the street or take candy from any Chancery Lawyers who drop by.
