I have loved in Woodhaven for two years. It's friendly , quiet, safe, close to the beach (easy drive / bus) next to an amazing park. It's a real community. The J train is great and I get it home late at night and it's totally safe feeling. I really like how easy it is to get to Brooklyn and the LES but coming home to a peaceful neighbourhood and having space. The new farmers market is great too!
I like the diversity and how I have a lot of variety of activities and restaurants to choose from. I also like that it's not as expensive to live in compared to other neighborhoods in Queens. I can commute to other boroughs easily as well either by car or public transportation and I am within walking distance to stores, banks, supermarket, and the subway.
For 13 years now Woodhaven has been my home. I grew up walking under the train tracks to school and soon enough taking the J train to my current high school. The community is great with annual street fairs, local school and the amazing food joints around. I hope to see my childhood community flourish with more ethnic diversity job availability.
