I thought that as well especially from Menahan to Madison from Traffic ave to Forest ave. This area actually has some beautiful houses that would almost make you think you're in the suburbs of Queens as opposed to the traditionally urban area of Ridgewood. I would say around this section, the majority is still Italian with Polish being a close second.

Those limestone rowhouses over there are nice. They have similar ones along Irving ave in Bushwick. Problem is that you have to go to Fresh Pond to get out, everything is pretty much one way in and one way out. That Italian festival must be such a pain to anyone living down those streets.

You are awfully quick to write off an entire boro of 2.5 million people or so as being by far the most racist boro. Meanwhile it is by far the most ethnically diverse place in the world. Funny how the most ethnically diverse place in the world is always labeled to be the most racist place in the world at the same time. Whether it is Archie Bunker and Donald Trump (both from Queens) or the Howard Beach drama, Queens is home to all the racists, and at the same time, all the diversity that isn't evident elsewhere. I grew up in Queens, with people from many different ethnicities and race. We all joked with one another, all out of good fun. Now these days, everyone just goes around claiming to be acceptable of all peoples, yet at the same time segregate themselves from the world in order to do so. Guess what though, people will discriminate and continue to do so. A muslim won't rent to a jew, a jew won't rent to a muslim, the Irish discrimated against the Italians, the Italians towards the Puerto Rican, chinese to the koreans, blacks against asians, etc..., but only one group can pull out the race card while others just move on to find the next place to live.

Yea, the Italian festival must be horrible for anyone on Fresh Pond or in between traffic to Fresh Pond. To be fair though, those streets are very close to Metropolitan ave and you can always continue going up where 60th place and Forest ave merge with other streets.

I use to live on Gates Avenue right between Fresh Pond and Traffic on a beautiful block . Whenever the feast was around it was a brutal nightmare.

You don't have to do anything apart from acknowledge that Queens is no different than the rest of NYC.
