I'm speaking of the nicer areas. Plenty of trees. The Bronx is beautiful with the right residents.

It has been a long time since I've lived in Brooklyn but my brothers still do! My younger brother lives in Ocean Parkway section which is very pretty and I can vouch for his friendliness. One hundred percent! My other brother lives in Sheepshead Bay near Ave U and he is also very friendly. I can't say everyone is like my brothers but there are at least two very friendly humans living in Brooklyn. But let's face it, the challenges of living in NYC can wear out the friendlessness out of anyone for a day so one has to be forgiving and empathic when living in Brooklyn.

Yours truly,

A very friendly ex-Brooklynite

The nicer areas of Queens have many more trees than the nicer areas of Brooklyn. Take a walk through Forest Hills Gardens, Jamaica Estates or Little Neck.

As for cleanliness - it's completely absent in the northeast in general, for whatever reason.

Also evident in the huge amount of trash everywhere.

If you need cleanliness, try Japan. You could eat off the streets, seriously, they are immaculate, as is everything about the country. In fact, many subways in Aisa have public bathrooms that are actually very clean and entirely safe. Not so here. sad, really.
Japan is clean. However, their public bathrooms while not atrociously dirty...let's just say are not as clean. And zero toilet paper. But they make up for it by passing these little, tissue packs to you while passing out flyers on the street. Now I know why everyone walks around with those.

Forest Hills Gardens is probably one of the nice neighborhoods in Queens. Forest Hills and Rego Park are also not that bad either.
