"Van Siclen Court is it's Own Little Neighborhood"
Van Siclen Court really should be an extension of Van Siclen Avenue, since it is only one block long and is what New Yorker's call a "dead end," (although others refer to these streets as "cul de sacs" which sounds more elegant). The neighbors on this little street are a very tight group, since they all lie in single-family or two-family homes and are protective of each other's properties. They are conveniently located right off Jamaica Avenue, a busy thoroughfare, which has shopping and restaurants and other services within a few blocks. This neighborhood is a little rough these days, but the folks who have lived here for many years try to keep the neighborhood spirit alive. If you move here, be prepared to get involved with neighborhood watches.
