"Neighborhood has changed"

Longtime Glendale resident of fourty years. Used to be a nice quiet place to raise a family. When the old time residents sold or died off, people mostly from Bushwick moved in creating many quality of life issues in the neighborhood. We now have parking issues, blocked driveways, loud music , young kids walking around smoking marijuana right in the street and illegal rentals ( numerous families living in a one family house). You can also forget about placing anything nice on your front lawn (planters, Holiday decorations). They will be stolen. It happened to me numerous times. Many abandoned cars stored in the area as well with out of state and mismatched plates. I am fortunate enough to have two very good neighbors (yes, from Bushwick) but they are the exceptions to the rule. Nothing is more frustrating than constantly having your driveway blocked by your own neighbors. It is a shame. Our neighbors used to use common courtesy and respect each other's property. No more. The Liberty Park area of Glendale has become part of the Borough of Brooklyn. What a shame.
  • In some areas, traffic needs to be better managed
  • Main business district (Myrtle Ave.) needs more trash pick up
corinnep1 This is so sad for me. My family moved from little italy to white plains about 50 years ago. I am 39 now and I was looking for a nice community to raise my children with Italian roots and a nice parish, and have decided on glendale (im in brooklyn now trying to escape the madness). So sad to hear
