I love the quiet environment, it is very peaceful here. Also, the people are fairly nice. There are stores nearby, like target, BJ's, TJ Maxx, Shoprite, Old Navy, and more! It is very convenient for grocery shopping.

Whitestone is a family-freindly and very family oriented neighborhood. It is a very close-knit community, with many different cultures all coming together. There are many different religious centers and all types of cultural foods in one area. Everything is very close together, so there is no need for commute to other areas to get what you want. The only issue is the lack of public transportation that runs through Whitestone. Very few buses run through Whitestone and the closest train is a 30 minute bus ride away.
I might be biased, having come from this area, but ever since I've been a kid, I haven't seen a neighborhood as beautiful as Whitestone, NY. I've always appreciated where I live, and not just for the pizza, but for the people. The culture of this neighborhood is one of stereotypical New Yorkers, but in a good way. I love this neighborhood to its core because it is the environment which shaped my life to how it is now.
