Seeing as the majority of this block is nestled up against a massive roundabout which feeds off the Holland Tunnel, there really isn't much to admire around here. Off in the distance you can spy the fire house which was used for Ghostbusters, but it's a solid two blocks away. In the middle of the tangle of streets here is St. Johns Park which is only accessible by way of some pedestrian bridges which leap over the swirling mess of cars.
With the exception of all the cars scrambling to enter the city, this block is rather quiet. As you get closer towards Canal Street and Cavala Park, this serenity begins to disappear, but it's still rather peaceful compared to some surrounding streets.
