Queens is beautiful with a diverse society. There is ease of access to transportation, shopping, and healthcare! There are many museums, libraries and fun things to do as a single person, couple, group of friends or family. Safety is usually paramount any place and New York is relatively a safe place. There are many people living here, so there are always activities happening.

Queens is an extremely diverse neighborhood, a fact on which we pride ourselves upon. Queens is a huge borough and thus certain parts of it are better than others. For example, Forest Hills is a really nice town within Queens but the houses can be very pricey. Parts of Jamaica, however, aren't as nice. It all depends on where you are! In general, I have grown up in Queens and have had a very good experience going to school here and meeting kind people.
Living in Queens, you could find anything in just 1,2,3! I love that it takes me 30 mins to get to the city taking the E train from Queens. There's always something different you see living in queens, it could be the houses, people, food, anything! I am very comfortable living in queens, wouldn't move anywhere else..
