Hollis is somewhat rundown

The birthplace of hip hop mogul, Russel Simmons, Hollis has seen its heyday. It’s quiet, kinda grungy, and overall desolate.

Its balance of suburbia and the city and it isn’t as nice as places further out in Queens like Cambria or Rosedale.

There are streets where the trees and houses give it a good vibe, but there seem to be far too many dilapidated businesses or rundown streets facing the train tracks.
