Rego Park Reviews
Rego Park has been great for my family. Neighbors have been very kind & generally communicate with each other when passing by. Restaurants are close by & there is shopping around as well. There is a good balance of being away from the NY craziness but still close enough. I feel that everyone living here is super healthy because you're not covered in smog and you have to walk around a bit to get places. You can take a bus or a subway and there is always plenty of parking if you choose to drive. Feel safe to walk around at night & no issues commuting back late at night. My family & I are happy living here. Excited to take the kids out when older to go play around the neighborhood!
Rego Park is such a diverse community! If you live there everyone at least recognizes each other's face. Over the past few years the area has changed a lot with the expansion of the Queens Center Mall, addition of rego center and new complexes have opened up. Because of all the new accommodations the prices of the area had increased significantly, but that doesn't take away from the people. I wish it were a tad bit less expensive, but I understand that inflation is very much real. Oh well.
What I like about RegoPark is that everything is nearby. You don't really need a car in this area for anything. There are several supermarkets/shopping centers within a 10-15 minute walk as well as several religious temples/churches. There is also an elementary school in the area, a middle school, and a high school. So kids like myself who grew up in the neighborhood don't have to go through the hassle of public transportation or traffic to get to school because its all located within a walking distance in the RegoPark area. There is also a hospital in the neighborhood and several types of medical offices/services available. One thing I would change is possibly more street lights/lamp posts. The area is overall pretty safe at night and personally I've never been afraid of walking around the neighborhood at night but a little bit more light in some places would be nice.
