Slightly more affordable, diverse, and accessible than Forest Hills Gardens, Jamaica Estates breaks the boring Queens street grid with gently curving streets that follow topographical contours.
The crappy structure on the left boasts exposed water meters, and three parked cars on its property. At least the tree was spared from becoming another parking spot
For now, most homeowners in Jamaica Estates care about their homes. Most lawns remain unpaved and unfenced. Most trees remain untouched.
Some streets don't even have sidewalks! It feels like being on the edge of a city.
You be the judge - is this home an example of Queens or crap? Water meters and wires are not exposed; the lawn is green; the height is the same as its neighbors. On the other hand, the pink color makes the home look like a life-size dollhouse. - by mazeartist
