Best bet is to go there and knock on some doors. Tell people you are thinking of living there and ask them for the best and worst things they think about the area.
I don't believe that I will have any problem selling my condo because it is very clean and I have had tens of thousands of dollars in repairs and improvements made since I purchased it!
Unlike many other people in this community who have their condos on the market, I will not be asking an unrealistic amount for my home!
There are many Russians and Koreans who don't care about what a dump this development is!
Besides, If I can't sell, I will just rent to a Section 8 family for a big profit!
The stories which you have heard about Woodbrooke Estates are true! The development is a dump, and if I were you, I would steer clear of the place!
The local police (123rd Precinct) are the laziest in the city, and it takes them literally HOURS (if at all) to respond to calls for assistance. Woodbrooke Estates does not bother to provide professional security during the summer months, so the juvenile delinquent punks who live in the community run amok, vandalizing and writing graffitti all over the development!
The "amenities" (if you want to call them that) consist of an undersized swimming pool, a clubhouse and clubhouse parking lot which the residents are forbidden to use, dilapidated handball, tennis, and basketball courts, and a so-called "meadow" which is usually filled with teenage kids hanging out, drinking beer, and having sex!
Don't believe me? Take a walk throughout the development on a weekend evening and see for yourself!
Google "Woodbrooke Estates Staten Island" for more information!
There can be issues with young kids at times just because of the concentration of young families. However, these communities are very good by anyoneâ€™s standard.
the pool is clean, the play ground is new. not a bad place..or i would move my kids out of here in a second, i grew up a few blocks away from here the arear is top notch
If you have questions in regard to any community you can contact the nearest police station to inquire.
You can contact people already living in a community and ask them questions. Sometimes what one person calls juvenile delinquents another person calls teenagers being teenagers. You may be able to get some information from community board 3.

Woodbrooke Estates is no different than any other neighborhood in the city. It has the same problems with teens that every other area has. For the most part the kids are OK, but there are always a few rotten apples. The local police have always been happy to assist any neighborhood with any problems. Anywhere there are a lot of kids there will always be problems...but none that should keep you away.
