Jackson Heights is an up and coming area. In the early 1990's crime wave, as most immigrant communities suffered from the effect of petty crime etc... Statistically speaking, I truly believe that most immigrants legal or not that reside in the neighborhood are too busy making a living that crime will not be in the mind of the majority. Walking around the neighborhood, check the main train line and you will see a mix of people from all corners of the world. Unless you walk in what is visible wealth, you will not be likely to be a target of crime than other people living in there.

Crime, grizzly or petty can occur in the most expensive or safe neighborhoods in the city.

Nevertheless, if I were a single woman, I would not walk alone late at night if I did not have to. This is just common sense that can be applied anywhere in NYC.

Carol, I just took a quick look at the inventory (as per MLSLI) and found the following inventory in Queens/Brooklyn under $400k::

2009 condos/coops
907 homes (including 130 2-3 unit properties)

Brings up lots of questions. A multi-family, single family or condo? How much property management are you prepared to undertake yourself? Preference for neighborhood types? Marginal, up and coming, established, toney?

In regards to Jackson Hgts, it's a very attractive location w/a nice supply of units at modest to moderate prices. I'm familiar w/the area and have seen it's rise since I helped start to terrific schools there. In terms of current inventory, there are 26 condo units for sale under $399,999--a couple 1 bdrms as $269k, and 119 coop units (ranging from a $119k studio to a $389k 2bdrm in the prime historic district).

Lots of great choices.

Carol, Let me know if you'd like my assistance in your search.

the price of the property doesn't really depends on Square feet, we estimate it based on the recent sale in the building, similar area, amount of shares if its in the same building and of course the most important LOCATION. Let me know if you are on the market for sale or purchase of the property. ... more
