My neighborhood is Rochdale Village; however, no one knows that name so I just tell them Jamaica, Queens. I just moved to this part of Queens in December and I’m quite pleased with it. It isn’t busy or loud on my block but on the main streets (either Guy R Brewer or Merrick) it can get busy. The loudest it has gotten, however, was when these “rappers” were making a video in the schoolyard — FAIL! The few good things about it is that I’m a block away from a bus depot, which also happens to be where my mother works, so it’s easy to get where I need to go. There isn’t much I can say I don’t like because I don’t “hang out” like most people do. Visitors to my neighborhood should know that it is conveniently placed near transportation: we have a LIRR station that can take you to Penn Station or Babylon or both (and a bunch more places) — your choice. It’s also close to the E,F,J and Z trains. Another thing visitors should know about my neighborhood is that it has a great place to shop for the latest “kicks” TAX-FREE (some stores) on “The Ave,” as we call it, or Jamaica Avenue.
