For displaced, misplaced, and nostalgic ex-Queensites

Grew Up in Queens meant boring childhood?

I think this discussion board is fading because ex-Queens people in general seem to have very little enthusiasm for their old Queens neighborhoods. Queens was and still is too suburban. It lacked the cohesive, inner-city qualities that Brooklyn and the Bronx had. In the 50s and 60s, people moved to Queens as if they were moving to the burbs. The borough had no real heart.
