Health is really the most essential form of wealth. Better health, wellness and fitness is an important goal to be reached by Southeast Queens residents because of the communities present social realities.

According to the Farmers Boulevard Community Development Corp., organizers of the upcoming June, 13th 2015, Farmers Boulevard Health Fair, "Obesity continues to be a challenge for approximately 1/3 of adult men, 1/2 of adult women, and 1/3 of our children."  The organization hopes to cut down on obesity and other health, life style affordability, and wealth problems with it's annual fair.  The health fair is a running  a few years strong.

St. Albans, New York, and the nearby areas of Southeast Queens are known for their historic status and highly regarded and celebrity residents.  Former residents read like a "who's who" of historic icons in jazz, hip hop, sports, civil rights and the entertainment fields.  Celebrities and luminaries like James Brown, Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, W.E.B. Du bois, Russell Simmons, LL Cool J, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Fats Waller, 50 Cent, Milt Hinton, Nikki Minaj, Run DMC, Roy Wilkens, Joe Morton, and many others were once residents of the St. Albans or nearby communities comprising Southeast Queens. 

Nevertheless, these days area residents have a lot of issues with having access to affordable health care, fitness, relationship, and retirement issues according to the Farmers Boulevard Community Development Corp (FBCDC).

Farmers Boulevard Community Development Corp., run by Attorney Isa Abdur-Rahman, looks to restore Farmer's Blvd, and it's residents in the nearby communities, to both financial and physical wellness. "We want families and business owners to recognize Farmers Boulevard as an excellent place to grow a business, to grow healthier, and to help your children grow to be successful,” explained Isa Abdur-Rahman, Esq., FBCDC’s Executive Director.
