"Average Queens Neighborhood"
123rd Street is an average, middle class neighborhood in the College Point area of Queens. I would describe it as "Archie Bunker's neighborhood," as the people who live there have been residents of this street for decades and are a bit suspicious of outsiders who try to move in. They want to know WHY you are moving to their street. If you have a good reason, you are welcomed with open arms. If not, you will find a chilly reception. This isn't bad. I think it's great that the people here look out for their own and try to be good friends and neighbors. Although not near any large major shopping malls, there are plenty of neighborhood shops and prices are about what you'd expect for a middle class Queens area. All in all, 123rd Street is a solid place to live. Very established and a decent place for families.
