Hi i had a question regarding the safety of Wood side, i would be grateful if you could help me out. I am from a small little town in south Texas and my wife and and i visiting NYC in October. We are staying at the quality inn at 53-05 Queens Blvd. Is that area safe at all times of the day and night? should i avoid that area all together?
