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!
My family and i moved to St Albans Queens when i was 4 years old and we have lived here since. Its a lower middle class predominately black neighborhood. Its full of large private houses and very family oriented . Altho like a lot of new york neighborhoods, it had a problem with crime in the 90s but things turned around in the 2000s and if you visit for the first time nowadays, you would never be able to tell such a calm neighborhood had its rough times. Since the area is very residential theres, more small businesses than larger ones and the little bit of bars/clubs available can draw rowdy crowds. The scenery seems to be changing as more large franchise businesses are moving in and more building with apartment units are being built.
