"Pretty Houses, Friendly Neighborhood, Clean Streets"

As someone who hails from Brooklyn, going to Queens was like going to a foreign country, especially trying to get around the borough with all of the numbered streets, roads and avenues. 218th Street is a really pretty street in some places, especially between Hillside Avenue and Jamaica Avenue. This strip of the street has large single family homes (some of them have been converted to duplexes) with nice front yards, some driveways and space between the houses. The neighbors are friendly and caring, and through the use of a neighborhood watch, keep any criminal mischief out of the way. There is good shopping on Jamaica and Hillside Avenue, and you aren't far from schools, houses of worship and public transportation. If you know your way around the borough, this is a good location to find a home and raise a family. I found that it was a very walkable neighborhood, since the surrounding streets had a similar feel. I felt safe and comfortable here. I just wish the streets had real names, instead of numbered names!
