74th and Roosevelt has nothing on Hillside Avenue when it comes to visible Indian influence, from Jamaica all the way through Herricks. Probably not as famous only because it's not concentrated. It's like how guidebooks cover "Koreatown" in Manhattan but not Northern Blvd from Flushing through Great Neck.

In response to the OP's question, my vote goes to Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Rego Park. I choose these for their central Queens location, convenient access to Manhattan and Long Island, stable middle class population, access to urban conveniences like shopping, health care, entertainment, the mixture of urban and suburban, and a largely esthetic appearance of most of the neighborhoods in these three areas.

Would do please tell me something about part of Queens called Glendale?
What's it like for living for one young family with baby? Is it safe? What's like for commuting? Is there children's nursery? Generally what's your opinion about Glendale? Can you count me advantages and disadvantages of this area?

Thanks a lot. :-)
I lived in Glendale for 35 years. Great area. Parks, trees, quiet but not near subway. Forest park is large & beautiful. Mostly single & 2 family houses.

Why would you move to an area you never researched? There are good and bad sections of Far Rockaway.

I agree, any particular reason why your moving to Far Rock? Some parts are nice, but some are questionable too. Depending on your budget and/or needs, there are definitely nicer areas in Queens to move to. Far Rock is a little remote too, I think. I have a friend that used to live out there, and nobody wanted to drive him home because it was so out of the way

Far Rock is so remote the Long Island Railroad leaves city limits for seven stops before returning to make the stop there....

Most sections of far rockaway are terrible. I'm guessing your boyfriend is a black guy.

Rego Park and Howard Beach are great. Although you would need to provied more information about yourself for me to determine if you would like it.
