An improving neighborhood that combines peaceful lifestyle and comfortable commute to NYC. Have been a resident since 1998 and especially over the last 10 years the changes we have seen are astonishing: More businesses are opening, lots of young highly educated business-oriented people are moving in and overall it has been evolved as a great environment to live in!

It's really getting bad. Police are slow to respond and sometime re-victimize the victims. I really don't or can't know where to begin. I've lived with it for so long. The schools really try to curtail the gang activity but it is quite difficult to curtail something that just keeps becoming larger and larger as the months and years pass. Now, you can get shot for just walking on the "wrong" block. If you are not "Marion" or "Project" or whatever the kids today want to call themselves, you will be beaten, robbed and/or killed. There is no value to life anymore. Kindness has left the building and sadness and fear have taken it's place. The generations are deteriorating and no one trusts no one.
Heights is the best alternative to Manhattan. Great fit for families, Heights is a peaceful and quiet neighborhood with low crime and traffic. Diverse with 15-20 min commute to Manhattan. Amenities are good and getting improved.
