Less than five years ago this was probably one of the quietest stations in all of NYC. Now in less than one month we have a slashing, a stabbing and a shooting. We need a changing of the guard here since the Community Board and elected officials are asleep at the wheel.

Homelessness is out of control and the quality of residential areas is on a downward spiral

Sad to say that after a decade of living here it time to move. What attracted me to the area was quiet suburban living within NYC and not having to live in Nassau or Westchester to commute into NYC however over the last ten years other areas have gentrified, improved and flourished and FH & KG seemed to have degraded. I see homelessness like never before, crime in subway stations or on the corner of Union/QB, or along Austin St later in the evenings. One of the best kept secrets of NYC is now an area not much different than the rest of NYC.

Putting transit officers in the stations like they have in the past along with placing homeless shelters and prisons in other areas instead of residential areas. You know the way Mayors of yester-year have done.
