Located on the southern border of Queens in New York City lies my local community, Rosedale. It is comprised of mostly Caribbean immigrants in pursuit of their American Dream. Despite the strife and obstacles, our parents often push us to strive for academic excellence so we, as first-generation Americans, can have opportunities that were not available to them.

It is quiet and tree lined. I would like the snow removal to be much better. The school system can be better in the sense of the material they learn however, it is great other than that. I truly love how close the malls in Long Island are. It is a little scary to be in the evacuation zone however we know what to do Incase there is an emergency. Finding parking in the evening hours is horrendous but overall it is an amazing place to live.
I currently live in Rosedale and I have lived here for the majority of my life. It is a fairly quiet family orientated middle class neighborhood. The only issue with living here is the commute to Manhattan, it is sometimes an arduous task, unless you live within walking distance of the Long Island Railroad, which will cut your commute in half (30-45 minutes). However if you live where I do, and aren't always willing to walk the almost two miles, you have to deal with an one and a half hour commute via bus and subway. As far as night life, there isn't very much just a couple bars scattered here and there, other than that there's nothing else in terms of entertainment. I will say it's very peaceful and I have enjoyed my time living in this neighborhood.
