There are no gangs and no indoor mall. There is a Costco , Burlington and DSW close by. But Central Ave is your best bet. Are you looking for something specific ?

If you don't understand, maybe you ask to clarify before you attack. I won't bother clarifying. People like you will likely attack no matter what.

Green acres mall is about 10-15 minutes away. Also Erskine street. Neither are in particularly upper class neighborhoods. The closest nicer mall would probably be roosevelt field but that's probably closer to 30 minutes.

Can you explain what you mean by “safe from gangs”?

The area immediately around the airport is pretty low class, I wouldn't feel safe there.

There is a strip mall with children’s place, Payless, and some other stores, I forget which. There’s also bell harbor mall which has dsw, Burlington, rainbow, a small target, marshals, and maybe something else. Both areas are safe. There is also central Avenue, which is about 10 minutes from the airport, and there are lots of stores there. I generally try to avoid it though, as most of those stores are overpriced and/or out of my price range.
For those saying there are no gangs in the area….wake up. There is very little gang activity, but there are certainly gangs.

I disagree. The shopping in the two areas I mentioned (the strip mall and bell harbor mall) are both 5-10 minutes away from the mall, and both are perfectly safe. They are not Jewish areas, that’s all.

Right, I agree. The shopping and the “dangerous” living area are not in the same area. I don’t even know where the “dangerous” area is, near the airport!

Far Rockaway was unsafe when I was growing up, over 20 years ago. And the malls and stores near the airport were certainly low class back then, but not necessarily unsafe. Some good bargains there, though.

I wouldn’t consider the stores or shopping areas low class. We are not talking about mott Avenue.
