Cute article especially the part about the WiFi Dunkin Donuts I know someone with a good job who lives in Woodhaven (a stone's throw north of C.Hills) but I have no desire to visit. We're not close friends or anything. My gut instinct says she's socking away tons of savings per month living near C.Hills/Woodhaven while having a good job. Uh, a very good job to be honest. Are those neighborhoods similar?: C.Hills and Woodhaven? I would imagine so.

i live in Woodhaven, which starts on the Elderts Lane border - that's where my super market is so I am there every other day - Police are constantly stationed there to quell the gang problems from the teens getting out of the new charter school that was once Franklin K Lane - voted worst school in the 5 boroughs a few yrs ago (right before they closed it) Area is grimy, trash in the street, lots of teens/men loitering about in front of bodegas and up the strip.

Ive never been robbed - people know not to venture into C. Hills after dark, lots of car robberies, ppl geting jacking waiting for the bus type of crimes. Ive never seen the house pictured, but I don't care how cheap it is, the crime/noise/trash/bad schools is enough to know that's where Woodhaven is headed. Don't get me started about Woodhaven...
