Elmhurst is a large neighborhood that spans the entire east-to-west division of the Safe Zone. Its western side is comprised of hundreds of rundown and dilapidated factories and mill buildings that were abandoned even before the civil war, when the post-Bomb economy sent Queens into a nosedive. On its eastern end, Elmhurst transitions into a sprawling residential neighborhood littered with overgrown and wild parks and mostly-repaired brownstones and tenement buildings. Due to its sheer size and the significant level of repair needed (unlike in Jackson Heights where most of the construction was new) large swaths of Elmhurst are still under reconstruction, and surveyors working for the State of New York assess the integrity of damaged buildings on a daily basis.
