Crime & Safety
There's many different cultures in Queens, which allows different people from different backgrounds to understand and live peacefully in the same neighborhood with one another. Children in school learn early that all people, despite ethnicity, native language, skin tone, or religion, are the same and can come together as a community. There are supermarkets, restaurants, gift stores, clothing stores, pharmacies, clinics, and more near apartments and houses in Queens. The train and bus stations are easy to find as well. The only complaint that I have now is that the marijuana scene is growing bigger and it can negatively impact Queens' youth.
Queens is a great place to grow up in. It is very family oriented. Like all boroughs it has its bad neighborhoods but overall it is a safe place to love. Police in Queens are also very active and prompt. Queens is also very diverse and an easy area to get to. 15 minutes away from the city, bx, and bk. And about 20 mins from Long Island. Great place to live!
I have great neighborhood in Jamaica, Queens. It is a diverse area with lots of Bangali, Indian, afrecan-american people.The transportation facilities are great here, nearby subway and bus stop to go anywhere you want. Moreover, there are many supermarket where you can find almost everykind of every day necessities. The one thing i want to see change in this area as a recidents is to crime control since nowadays i heard about some robbery in this area. Other than that it is a nice place to live, and personaly I didn't face any problem to live in this area. Also, the place I live has nearby park, which a good facility for refreshment, and to enjoy natural beauty.
