I wanted to know how all the neighborhoods in Howard Beach are looked at by people who live or lived here recently. I haven't been to old Howard Beach or Hamilton beach. A friend who recently bought a house in old HB said Hamilton Beach is more of a poorer neighborhood. New HB is obviously the best section of the neighborhood. You have mostly single family homes from smaller homes to million dollar homes.

Is Lindenwood looked at the same as old HB in terms of neighborhood and prices ?

Have friends that just moved from Howard Beach to Long Island. Howard Beach (the newer part) is the best part, which has close access to Cross Bay Blvd where the amenities are. Lindenwood may be considered to be on the decline by some and that may be due to the changing demographics. Howard Beach is the most expensive, that's for sure. The homes there (go for a good penny). Friends left Howard Beach because they didn't care for some of the *characters* along Cross Bay Blvd. Howard Beach is still retained its character for the most part, and shouldn't be on the decline anytime soon.

I have a friend born and raised who still lives in the neighborhood. She never complains about it and likes where she lives, though she's had a few cases at the train station where she says people followed her. I don't think she's ever talked about Lindenwood to me.

The closer to Howard Beach in Lindenwood the better. Still *lots* of wise guys living in HB which keeps any bad element out. Also lots of cops that live in the area. In fact my friend that just moved to LI with his fiancée is a cop. The characters along Cross Bay Blvd. are just homeless types, but other than that neighborhood is fine and they don't usually congregate where the amenities are too often, but can be a nuisance at times. When mentioning Cross Bay Blvd., am really thinking further south by Broad Channel which can be more run down.

I completely agree with what you said about moving as close to HB/cross bay blvd as possible if you move to Lindenwood.

We recently moved to Lindenwood. It's a nice neighborhood, but there's a decent amount of trashy people. You wouldn't notice it by driving by. Lindenwood is definitely more diverse than all the other neighborhoods.

There are quite a few ghetto white folks. The type who have their pants saggin', dropping the N bomb all the time,driving with the windows down, blasting music, seat all the way back so all you can see is their heads. My neighbor is a drinker/ pothead. I'm not sure what he does for a living. He's always home.

The dominicans across the street like to throw parties/BBQ out of their garage in the front of the house for everyone to see. There are also dominicans next to them that have their social gatherings in the driveway.

I cant wait for my lease to be up.

One of the main reasons that Lindenwood is on the decline is it is cheaper than Howard Beach, which allows the type of element you mentioned to move in, and so it goes.

Makes sense. Large amount of space and a bit closer to Howard Beach... The areas closer to East New York should be avoided at all costs. Very ghetto types there and they're spilling over into Lindenwood. You'll know where that is because the demographics change sharply. The high prices should keep them at bay, not unless they start using drug money to buy there. Howard Beach is protected from that because of the cops that live there and or wise guys that look over the area.

Said earlier that I had friends that lived in the area. Am not sure what you're yapping about. Have commented on *MANY* areas around NYC. Black, brown, white and yellow if it makes any difference to you.
