How are they? Is it nice/well-maintained/safe? I'm looking around North Queens and checking some buildings out. I've heard that it's a project for the middle-class but don't know anything about them other than that. Thanks.

It used to be only for union members ( forgot which one), if it is open to the public, it really isn't in a great location, far from subways and on busy roads

i cant speak for the inside of the buildings but the exterior grounds always seem well-maintained.

I used to go there ten years ago.. I know, a lot could change in that time, but at that time, they were very well inside.. it just seemed like a huge apartment building, not a project of any sort at all.

They have their own private security. It is very safe in and outside the complex. I don't think it is far from the subway at all. Just 2 1/2 blocks away from 61st/Roosevelt Ave subway. As a kid I played baseball at Bush Park which is right across from the Big 6. Those apartments have great views of the Manhattan skyline.

I grew up there. Yes, very safe inside and out. The roads are not busy except for queens boulevard which always will be. Some apartments have a pretty good view of the Manhattan skyline. They do have private security, from Public Safety Department. The waiting list takes a few years, it took us five years back in 1991. The price is decent for a coop in New York City because the cost is subsidized by Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). The maintenance is also decent, as of now I believe it's 900/month for a 3 bedroom, 700 for 2 bedroom, 500 for 1 bedroom? I could be wrong, so check that out before getting excited. The walk to the train is about 5-6 blocks, not really 2 and a half...There's also the Q60 right on Queens Boulevard which can take you to the 7 train at 46th street if you can't walk far. There is a big park right across the street and two nice playgrounds inside the co-op. There are parking lots also, but you have to pay about 50 a month to rent a space. Parking is rough around there so those really help. A shopping center behind the complex has a Key Food, a gym that gives discounts to residents of the Big Six, pizza place, Chinese Food, Shoemaker, Dry Cleaning, Unisex salon, Child Center of NY office...Buildings are very well-kept inside. Security cameras show the lobby that you can access on your television. Laundry rooms have new machines that aren't the best, but they aren't expensive.
