I am interested in apartments in the historic area of Jackson Heights but I don't know that much about the area. My primary concern is safety since I work nights and come home late. How is the neighborhood? What is the feel and reputation of the area?

Thanks

i have lived in the historic district for three years and never had a problem at any hour of the day or night. i suggest you check it out for yourself to determine if you feel comfortable. the walk from the 74th or 82nd street train to your prospective home would be a good test.

Stay away from Roosevelt Ave, 37th Ave and to a lesser extent Northern Blvd and you will be fine. The Jackson Heights historic district is very underrated in my opinion. It doesn't get the recognition that it deserves. Stay below 90th St if you can.

Yes, we do. Often the bilingual and multilingual among us speak English even better than the natives who can only manage one language poorly.

Of course! There are also American born people who live in Jackson Heights whose first/native language is English!

There are no projects in Jackson Heights.. you're refering to the tenement buildings. It's a little more shady above the 90s.. I'd say at around 92+, but it's really not all that bad if you're used to walking the streets. It is however, a completely different vibe than the rest of the neighborhood.

37th Ave is fine. Roosevelt is also fine during the day.. if you REALLY have to walk on it at night, I doubt you'll come across any trouble, there are so many cop wagons patrolling through.. then again I have a good comfort zone with the neighborhood and have walked around at all times of night, pretty much everywhere, and nothing has ever happened to me.

Roosevelt Av at night is pretty noisy due to the amount of bars and social clubs on that strip alone. 37th Av and Northern Blvd mostly have restaurants, not too many bars.
