Woodside is a very quite and nice neighborhood. I've been living here since I was born and it is very close to Jackson Heights which is very convenient to buy anything that you may need. The 7 train runs through the neighborhood and there are many buses in the surrounding area making transportation very convenient and reliable. The community is largely composed of Hispanics and Southern Asians, allowing those with the same culture feel welcomed and able to share more experiences.
Woodside is a quite area. Along Northern Blvd you can find fast food restaurants, and a CVS pharmacy. There are two bus lines, the Q66 that can take you to Flushing and Q18 that can take you to Maspeth or Astoria. There is also the train line M and R on Northern Blvd. There are many sites of transportation, which makes traveling to work or school that much better!
What I like about Woodside is that it is calm and peaceful and everyone minds their own business on a daily basis. I also like it because it is close to public transportation and you can easily access the city, which is close to Woodside. What I would like to change about Woodside is the cost of houses. I want them to get lower. I also want to see change in the neighborhoods because some houses are really old and really need renovation. I wish that not that many people lived in Woodside. I wish the people were more higher class too because many in my neighborhood are homeless and are poor.
