"Good value on a quiet street"

Located on the border of Bushwick and Ridgewood, this Queens portion of Jefferson avenue is farily quiet and safe. While the immediate neighborhood has little to offer in terms of culture, nightlife and dining, the street is a quick walk to the L train at either Halsey or Myrtle Ave. The catering hall at the end of Jefferson (by Cypress) can complicate parking on the block, but most events are over by 11PM at which point the street becomes extremely quiet. The homes are not much to look at, but the low housing and rental prices offer a value that can't be found in other locations in the immediate surroundings. In terms of safety, crime is relatively low and there is sufficient foot traffic late at night on both Cypress and Wyckoff avenues to make a late walk home from the subway relatively safe. I would recommend this area for young singles or couples looking for an affordable place to live. If you have kids, I would look elsewhere.

"On Jefferson Avenue"

This street has several small businesses and conveniences and could be a nice place to live if you’re considering moving to New York City. I thought it was a nice street, the people were friendly, and that the traffic wasn’t quite as heavy as other nearby streets. All in all, I think it was a good street in a nice section of Queens.
