Kind of depends on what you’re looking for. Flushing is definitely up there for me, but I also like Elmhurst/Jackson Heights, Sunset Park, and Brighton Beach. I also lived in Washington Heights for a while and liked it quite a bit.

It's all a matter of personal preference, but I prefer Jackson Heights, Bushwick, Kensington, Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, and even Manhattan Chinatown

It's a nice place, but the construction is shoddy underneath it all. I've seen the apartments in person and was frankly not impressed with the work. That's Chinese money. White people would rather spend that and go live on Long Island. Who would want to live in congested, dirty, smelly downtown Flushing?
Its happening, or perhaps they just renting. If you come to Skyview you will see this.

I'm in Skyview all the time shopping. White people may be shopping in Skyview but they're not buying homes there, as much as anyone on this forum seems to think so.

I would be shocked if more than 10 white families live in the entire complex.

Itís almost 1200 units isnít it? Do you count families where one spouse is white as half a family?

full of racist crap. white people don't live in Skyview not because they don't want to, but because they cannot afford it.

White people with money largely aren't looking to live in Flushing

Depends on what part of Manhattan.

I do think that Flushing can do with some infrastructure improvements to help with congestion though. LIRR needs to operate more like a S-Bahn or RER and that could be done via a new service that deviates from the current Port Washington branch with a split after Great Neck so that the bottleneck with the single track can be addressed. The 7 train can also do with an extension either northwards or southwards.
