Well, I've been there at night but not super late. Still, I wouldn't call the neighborhood seedy because of what happens in it's nightlife strip late at night.

Queens did and still does have a lot of prostitutes though. Especially when you headed toward citi field (Shea stadium ). Nowadays, prostitution is mostly in other parts flushing. Citi field area is still not the greatest today but not much prostitution there anymore just mostly illegals and terrible roads.
Prostitution still goes on in Roosevelt avenue bars and massage park it's. As noted in the 89s and 90s they were selling bazooka big time in the Roosevelt Avenue area. You clearly just didn't know much about the area. The prostitutes are still there they went inside more or online. There were other bad parts of Queens in the 80s and 90s. Queens ridge, Lefrak City, Jamaica, and Far Rockaway.

It's seedy. If you are using public transportation you get on on Roosevelt and there you are at night. Having lots of people selling social security cards in and of itself is seedy.

Jackson Heights was never particularly dangerous though.
