According to StreetEasy, Jamaica's real-estate prices are rising the fastest out of all localities in New York City. The community's median home prices rose 39% in 2015. The median sales price for a small row house in 2015 was $330,000, and the median asking rent for a three-bedroom house in 2015 was $1,750. Sutphin Boulevard has been described as "the next tourist hot spot." The most characteristic strip in Jamaica is 165th Street—a pedestrian-only street crowded with sales barkers and boutiques. It features the wonderful Jamaica Colosseum Mall offering a combination mobile/hookah shop, a dentist and what may be the galaxy’s largest display of 14-karat gold. There's also fast access to Manhattan—it’s 21 minutes to Penn Station on the LIRR! PLEASE NOTE: THE BEDROOMS ARE BIG BUT THE LIVINGROOM IS SMALL.
