"Family oriented area"

The place is so safe is boring. Lots of different ethnic backgrounds and a large supermarket only 2 blocks away. I would say it has become harder to find parking because there are many people moving into this area. Sometimes there are some house parties but the music never stays on late or gets loud enough to be obnoxious. It is right on metropolitan Ave, and a few blocks up there are some restaurants that are really good. But as far as this street goes it is just quiet

"In the Middle of Everything"

129th Street makes it easy to live quietly while still being in the center of everything. Bad things: almost everything fun requires travel. Good thing: traveling is easy and the essentials are readily accessible. There is a grocery store within 5 minutes which includes a butcher and ethnic section. There is a little Indian restaurant on the next block, as well as a used car lot and a store for doors. The subway is easily available; Jamaica Van Wyck within 10 minutes and Union Turnpike within 15. And with that comes the life around Union, and the hospital and shops around Jamaica. If you want to quiet at night but still some access to fun, this is the perfect place to be.
