Jamaica Hills Reviews
I've been living here all my life. It's a very diverse neighborhood, also welcoming. Many people know each other, and cooperate within the community to make it a better place. Jamaica Hills is one of the most popular and welcoming community in Queens.
I think my area seems very quiet and no new residents are coming in. But whenever I commute by subway or bus, the area that I need to pass by to use transportation is always dirty and garbages are everywhere, especially around subway station which could be better cleaned by government's tax.
Very peaceful and solitude. No crimes. Easy access to public transportation, schools, local retailers and restaurants.
