"Peaceful Atomosphere, But Lacks Youthful Expression"
This neighborhood is an interesting mix of storefronts, single-family homes (with yards!), and greenery (when it’s not winter, at least) – a collection that you don’t usually see in New York City neighborhoods, and certainly not all at once (certainly not in Manhattan, anyway). The landscape is pretty flat, as Utopia likes to keep its buildings to one story, and it is a pretty middle class spot that is home to many Conservative and Orthodox Jews. Also calling the place home are residents of Chinese, Korean, Russian, Indian, and Hispanic backgrounds. The general feeling is that the neighborhood actually lives up to its name: it’s a peaceful place for residents to come home to, but you may not agree if your idea of a Utopia includes more bars and more nightlife.
