Throgg's Neck is a nice residential area right near its eponymous bridge. This particular house is semi-detached and boasts of a finished basement with a separate entrance (rental income?).
The pictures show a dwelling that might need a little updating, but not a full scale handy-man special. Not entirely sure why they didn't move the stripped down mattress that was leaning up against a wall before taking the photos for a real estate listing, but I've seen stranger things (like this LOD that had a a pic of a TV playing the 70s program "Good Times").
You're sort of near the water, which might be nice for walks. The house also has a backyard, which is often hard to find in New York City. The nearest subway station is pretty far away, so you would have to bus it to a train. Although, I am assuming most people in Throgg's Neck embrace the outer-borough car culture.
