For all the years I have been residing in this neighborhood, my experience growing up has been rather successful. Days in Richmond Hill are filled with ordinary citizens of various backgrounds going about their ordinary lives. Particularly, the typical summer view consists of children eagerly waiting in front of the ice cream truck and the occasional fireworks at night. One of the brightest aspects of Richmond Hill is safety, as you can peacefully venture out on the streets any time of day without the fear of putting your own life at risk. Therefore, nightly walks play a major role in my life during the summer. Despite this factor, I believe Richmond Hill could improve in the available sites and stores, for the nearest park isn't very accessible and the only stores we really have are grocery stores. Regardless, I wouldn't mind continuing to live here for another few years.

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.
I have been living in Richmond Hill for a while now and as someone who moved from a completely dangerous and vulgar neighborhood in Brooklyn, I am proud to say that I am very much satisfied with where I am living. It is also really quiet & I feel so safe. It is a family oriented area, I definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a place to live in Queens, New York.
