"Peaceful and pretty in an awesome nabe!"
I spent a lot of time on 35th Avenue between 73rd and 80th streets looking for an apartment. While I eventually moved elsewhere, I absolutely love this stretch of Jackson heights. 35th and the surrounding blocks are wide, tree lined streets and have a very "Brooklyn" feel to them except substitute pretty brick faced apartment buildings for the the brownstones. It is peaceful and parking is easy to find. 35th is also close enough to the stores and action on 37th ave and the Roosevelt/Broadway area, but you would never know it because once you cross over to 35th, the neighborhood has a completely different feel. For those who don't know, Jackson Heights is primarily an Indian, Pakistani and Asian neighborhood with the former dominating the 37th ave business stretch in the 70s. It offers AMAZING food, a greenmarket on weekends and an overall very family friendly environment. The commuting options are abundant as the E,F,R,V and 7 trains are all within walking distance from this strecth of 35th.
