I'm from Southside Jamaica and was wondering what other people thought was the most beautiful neighborhood in Southeastern Queens.I think it's either Addisleigh Park or Laurelton (exclude Jamaica Estates, Jamaica Hills, Holliswood,Hollis Hills and Briarwood) Show Pics

The most beautiful spot is the beach in Rockaway. I would also add to your list Fresh Meadows, if that is still southeastern Queens. I would never consider Briarwood "beautiful."

Based solely on appearance: I would rank them like this (from nicest to least nicest):


1. [Exclude:Jamaica Estates]
2. Addisleigh Park
3. Laurelton
4. Cambria Heights
5. [Excluded:Jamaica Hills]
6. Hollis
7. Brookville
8. Springfield Gardens
9. Rosedale
10. Queens Village
11. St. Albans
12. Rochdale
13. [Excluded: Briarwood]
14. South Jamaica
15. Rochdale Village
16. Jamaica

It also could vary based on your tastes too. Any place with a lot of brown brick buildings placed low on my list.

I'm basing this off of appearance only and not safety.

Jamaica is very industrial and unnappealing looking. South Jamaica is much more green.

One thing I don't find appealing about most of SE Queens is the steel bars on the doors/windows that a good amount of homes have, it definitely makes things look extremely rough.

Chain-link fences are also not flattering at all either.

There are security doors that are much more flattering on a house. Chain-link fences are also not flattering at all either.
I know that's why I started this thread
