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.
The people in richmond hill are very kind and helpful. Importantly it has nearly everything a resident might want, beautiful picturesque scenery, proximity to shopping, and many of the cultural centers. Nevertheless the roads can be some of the most congested in town, and the streets are not safe to walk late at night. Fortunately, I wake every morning to the most beautiful sun lit house.
