Wonderful quaint and quiet neighborhood in Queens. The area is changing and improving everyday. Homes are affordable and the nighbors are nice. Most people take pride in their little gardens and in their homes. Many young families are moving in which is a good sign. Transportation to the city and airports is great. All this area needs in a lovely cafe and I will never have to leave my zip code!

I have lived in this neighborhood for almost 20 years, since the late 1990s. Although the neighborhood has never been "bad", I have seen it improve for the better, especially the last 5-7 years. It's gotten quieter and I have very nice neighbors all around that are friendly and community oriented. Initially there were some homes nearby that had undesirable families in them, but one by one, different families moved in those homes and those families have really been friendly and community oriented. It's a nice middle class neighborhood close to parks, stores and transportation.
The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful and happy never any noise and there are nearby restaurants and corner stores which I like because I can just walk to get something to eat and there's also a family Dollar Wich means I can walk to get groceries also where I live the bus stop is right across the street. Overall this is a great neighborhood!
