Richmond Hill Reviews
I’ve been living in Richmond Hill for 22 years. It is a very busy and diverse neighborhood. I do like that there is easy accessibility to most stores, train stations, and gas stations. However, I dislike how busy and noisy the area is. Due to the increased population of people in the area, there tends to be more littering and undesirable scents due to the improper littering. I would like there to be a change, for our neighborhood to be as clean as it was before.
Been part of this community for decades. It is a very big West Indian and Punjabi community, public transportation is great (bus service would be Q8 or Q41 and train service would be E/J/Z trains connection to the air train. It is one of the closest neighborhoods to JFK airport/ about 15 minutes away and about 40 minutes to 55 minutes to Manhattan. The schools are okay could be better but not the worst. When it comes to crime rate personally I never been a victim of a crime. In summertime you can hear music but hey its NYC part of the city that never sleeps.
Richmond Hill has got to be one of the most diverse schools in all of New York City. Here one can sample the foods, witness the culture, and meet people who are from the Caribbean and the West Indies. The neighborhood is pretty safe, with crime kept at a low. There are also decent schools not far from the area, and access to public transportation could never get easier; around my part of the neighborhood, there are four buses, access to the train, and JFK Int'l Airport is no more than a 5-minute car ride away. Although it isn't necessarily cheap to move here, the rates are average (for New York) and one can travel to the city by train in less than an hour. In all, living here comes with plenty of benefits and I'm glad that I've spent most of my life here.
