I consider it a pro the same way I consider Flushing primarily Chinese a pro, or Woodlawn primarily Irish, or Greenpoint primarily Polish before the hipster takeover. It makes the neighborhood more interesting personally. Most of the local businesses on Cross Bay are Italian, and when you drive around the neighborhood itself you see a lot of well maintained beautiful homes with Italian flags.

IMO "Diverse" neighborhoods are pretty boring to me.

Is she in an Apt within Lindenwood? #1 complaint from residents is the air traffic noise followed up with over zealous traffic agents along Cross bay Blvd.

up until april the number of flights coming in over lindenwood was reduced greatly . it really wasn't an issue where she is .

a marked increase in noise has been noted in the area since late April, when, according to PANYNJ documents, runway 4L/22R was shut down. Simultaneously, other taxiways that intersect with the runway have also been impacted by the construction. In addition, runway 13R/31 L is being shortened and/or closed for some of this period. Port Authority sources indicate a finish date for most construction in mid-late September to november .

the change in patterns and number of flights are all related to the fact that one of the runways is closed for construction.

Unless you work in LI or nearby, the commute options are worst than living in LI or SI. There are flooding prone areas.

Buses take forever to get anyone and nearby trains aren't that closeby so you need to drive. A lot of airplane noises as noted by others. It's a same argument as living in SI, most people pick there to live in a certain ethnic neighborhood as oppose to being close to NYC or have conveniences nearby.

exactly.

so when the runway is complete, they will hear the planes again. Also they dont always land from the water, they come from the water and circle halfway over long island making the final descent all thru LI neighborhoods to runway 22...................................from hicksville on down to JFK. noise pollutuion.

If you want to understand Howard Beach, just get off the A train at the Airtrain transfer stop, be a stranger, and walk into that bar across the street from the train station and have a drink.
