How’s the area west of east hills in roslyn heights? The area in between Heights School and Roslyn High School. I read posts here someone mentioned avoiding areas near the school. I wonder why. Any take is appreciated

I live in Bayside but I'm retired (49 yrs old) and do Uber Eats and Doordash on the side in that area. Make great money. I only know the area from my perspective as someone who drives in and around there all day. There is one area that I was surprised to find, around Laurel and Church streets. Very hood. And I mean very, very hood. Just off Roslyn road south of the high school. Sort of a nice housing project but not a place to be caught around at night. Trust me, I know.

That little spot south of the high school near the train may be hood, but it's been exactly as it is for 25+ years and hasn't really lowered any housing costs in the area. My uncle's old house near there sold for $660k needing complete updates and was just demolished and the new house is $3.5m. So much for "hood.

My kid goes to Heights school. The area is perfectly safe. The quality of life issues around the school and LIRR station has more has to do with school buses, and the street being more busy. Food delivery guy calling the area "hood" is an exaggeration. To some people, anywhere not lily white is hood. Its not as fancy as the rest of Roslyn/East Hills, and all the North shore towns have a section 8 housing area. MS13 is not going to murder you.

^Glad someone else said it about the area, as this narrative is quick to be given on here for said areas without context or data. What is ironic, Roslyn Heights has always had a visible black population in that area, given that Salem African Methodist Episcopal Church has been in that area since 1867. There is another church in that area as well(Assembly of Prayer Baptist Church). So, there has been a community there for a very long time. Let alone the Asians and Hispanics also in that area. Here is some information from the same type of thread: https://www.city-data.com/forum/new-...ast-hills.html
