If you do, I recommend exploring the area around Juniper Park.

Thinking about central Queens in general (especially the greater Queens Boulevard-adjoining neighborhoods & greater vicinity), I'd love to live in Forest Hills Gardens. Ah, the best of both worlds (suburban-like, beautiful and idyllic yet situated in a very convenient location in the heart of the city . . . convenient to shopping & services, multiple modes of transportation, et al). Hey, I can dream, can't I?

No way is Arthur avenue italian, let alone heavily Italian. It's Hispanic now. Mostly Mexican and Puerto Ricans. There may be a few Albanians in the area too.

Indeed it is, but that's where the Italians all went.
I think like 60% of the residents claim Italian ancestry and all originated from NYC.

Italians left in large droves.
Culturally they like to be around their own kind.

Damn, it's almost like every neighborhood I bring up has lost its majority Italian population. Beside Howard Beach, are they all gone now?
