Is anyone familiar with Jamaica, NY? I need to go there on business in a couple weeks and wanted to know if it's a pretty safe area. I am staying at a hotel close to JFK airport. When I called the hotel to ask if there were restaurants nearby, the gentleman told me there wasn't anything within walking distance and that I was in a residential neighborhood. I travel a lot for my full-time job but this is my first trip to NY. I'm a bit nervous about this one... Thanks for any info you can provide.
