I live in a street, the kids are always playing in the street with complete disregard for their neighboors property (kicking their balls into parked cars, throwing tree branches on the road, shouting abuse etc.) while the parents either don't know about this or don't care... avoid children and teenagers :p

edit: and my neighboors across the road with loud... ancestry happily shouting at each other (apparently having a normal conversation from what I can hear - very well)

the upside to a court is the lack of traffic.
Children can safely go out in the court and play cricket or footy or whatever.
the downside i guess is the nosey neighbours (a street isnt as bad since its just the neighbours each side of your house).

the downside to a street is the amount of traffic that travels it.

which is better - it depends on what you like in life i guess.

I have lived on streets and courts. All other things being equal - I'd choose the court every time. Less traffic, quiet and out of the way. Whilst you can have the whole "Neighbors" community thing happening it is not necessary. Mine are great - have a quick chat over the fence once and a while - they will call the police if a moving van rocks up whilst I'm away from home but otherwise everybody minds their own businesses. (Oh he gave me a couple of crownies after I mowed his front yard when he was on hols :))

It really depends on the neighbours. I've lived in a court and although there was slightly less traffic than most streets, the neighbours weren't necessarily quiet. On side of us I am sure the neighbours were dealing drugs or doing something dodgy. They would have many visitors late at night come and go and also regularly have drinking sessions in their back yard, talking very loudly and generally with music playing... and not just on weekends. The other side of us was a bunch of teenagers that obviously didn't have jobs. They were ALWAYS home and they had a couple of old supra's on their front lawn that they played with all the time... starting them up and revving the hell out of them with their loud exhausts. They also had a mate that would visit regularly who drove a V8 stato and you could almost guarantee he would rip a skid every time he left.
Other than that the lack of traffic was great... but like I said, street or court, it really depends on the behaviour of your neighbours.
