"Beautiful Area and Great Neighborhood"

This is one area that has a lot of beauty, not just for the landscape, but the architecture of the buildings also makes for a site to see. The streets are rather clean and the people are pretty decent as well. It is a great place to live.
  • Beautiful looking area
  • Very neat and clean
  • Too busy at times

"Great neighborhood to settle in."

While tourists may be disappointed by the "average" feeling of this neighborhood those who are looking to move in will likely be impressed. The street between 33rd and 28th avenues is highly convenient for residents and Bowne Park is within walking distance. Bowne Park is not a big park by any means but it offers residents a nice place to sit and relax. It's also close to the buses that take residents to the subway station. Overall it's a win-win situation.

"Great Street for Residents"

Another street for the residents of the neighborhood. Virtually all of the businesses here are designed for specific services, not really for the average consumer. This isn’t a tourist street and this isn’t a tourist neighborhood. I don’t think this street is worth the trip, as there are other, more exciting places to visit in Queens.
