From what I hear, certain buildings are better than others in terms of who else is living there. AFAIK, there was some drug dealing going on in some of the buildings on the ocean side. The buildings on the opposite side of the road have a better rep. (But of course that can change as tenants come, tenants leave!) Talk to the super/office staff and tell them your story and that you are really looking for a quiet building/quiet floor with people who are a bit older. Hopefully they will have an apartment in the best spot for you. Do you have a car? Although there are buses right at the door, I think a car would be a good thing to have in that area to get to shopping, etc. AFAIK the parking lot is gated for residents only so having a car there should be safe. I know the apartments there generally have nice-sized rooms and the management seems to keep the place up.

not saying that it wont be a good place for u....

im saying that if you're used to living in the hood then living in wavecrest will be a breeze. if you're not used to that kind of environment though. it will be a culture shock. still got young guys hanging outside of the store, that kind of thing. however it is very convenient in some ways. bank of america, grocery, pizza, cleaners, subway sandwiches, cvs all on site.

Been living at Wavecrest for 5 years now. It was nice when I moved in - and has gotten even better the last few years. They made more parking spots and add a lot of new landscaping. you feel like you are living in a park - not the city. but like the ohter guy said - you have the CVS, Dry Cleaners, Dunkin Donuts, Bank of America all right here - so you have everything you need.
Look at other apartments in Queens - you are not going to find better for the price. I just joined the new gym too - its great

Thumbs up Life at Wavecrest Gardens

To: Far Rock Bill,
I moved into Wavecrest Gardens in November 2010. I agree that you can't get better for the price. I have a long commute to the city, so I am wondering when I'll get the time to go to the gym if I join. I am planning to rollerblade on the boardwalk and to get a mountain bike. After having lived in Manhattan for many years I notice that the air in the Rockaways seems to take away any skin irritations. I've been to the beach a few times this winter and I got beautiful pictures of snow on sand. My building is quiet and as far as I can see, there are working people who live here. I called maintenance once so far and the maintenance worker asked me for something to drink - well he ended up getting something to drink, a slice of cake and a tip. I think the drip in the kitchen sink is fixed In Manhattan maintenace workers never ask for something to drink, so already there is that air of friendliness, if you will, at Wavecrest Gardens.
