"One of the Busiest and Ugliest Roads in NYC"

Of all roads in NYC, Queens Blvd takes the cake as the busiest and ugliest. If you go uptown on 3rd Ave or 1st Ave, and you get close to 59th St, you will find just how busy it can get. Traffic can sometimes get backed up for a mile. It depends on the time of day.

No matter queens blvd is no doubt the longest and busiest one between NYC and Queens, considering people use this stretch of road to go over the Queensboro Bridge. In fact, this is the main entry into NYC that is free.

The only great thing about Queens Blvd is it has a ton of stores you can go shop at. My advice is to leave your car in Manhattan and take the bus or the subway. Walking around will benefit you more than driving.
  • Plenty of stores
  • Plenty of restaurants
  • Too busy at times
  • Bad street to travel on
  • Unsafe place to be

"Long busy street with lots to see!"

Queens Boulevard is a very long street where you can visit by taking a number of buses and trains such as the E, F, G, R, and V. One of the most popular malls of the city is also located here, Queens Center Mall. Many cars pass along the road so you must be careful when crossing, even when the traffic lights tell you to go. There is also plenty of foot traffic that come along here and plenty to see, eat, and shop!

"One of the Busiest Roads in the World"

Queens Boulevard is one of the longest and busiest roads in Queens. It runs through several neighborhoods. It has a myriad of different businesses ranging from large chain stores to small businesses all along the way. There is one glaring problem with Queens Boulevard; it's dangerous. Pedestrian traffic and vehicle traffic intersect at alarming rates and at 12 lanes wide in many sections those attempting to cross have a very dangerous sprint across. The local government has attempted to cut down on the danger, but it remains a significant problem in the area.
hudson Have you ever attempted to walk across Queens Blvd? It is IMPOSSIBLE. You have to run. the map shows the 59th street bridge, in truth when Queens residents think of busy Queens Blvd they think of Queens Plaza, or Forest Hills. I guess with all those lanes, and the length of the street, drivers feel like they are on the FDR and treat it like a highway, not a major thoroughfare in a residential and shopping area.
