"For all things South Asian"

A Little India can today be found in almost every major western city and New York City is no exception, in fact it boasts of not one but two ‘Little India’ districts one of which is located along 37th Avenue and 74th Street in an area known as Jackson Heights in the borough of Queens. This area can be easily accessed from Manhattan and Brooklyn via a plethora of subway lines (E, F, G, R, V, 7) which come into the Roosevelt Avenue and Jackson Heights station.
The Little India located in Jackson Heights is populated by several stores and restaurants all of which cater to the diverse needs of the city’s South Asian populations and accordingly located here are several stores that retail 24 karat intricately carved gold ornaments which are generally favored by this community, unlocked GSM phones, VOIP phone cards and Bollywood CDs and DVDs, and colorful, heavily embellished saris and other native costumes. Also located along this street is the gargantuan Indian grocery store, Patel Brothers which sells a wide array of prepared foods, spices, fresh produce, sauces, curries which are sourced from India and elsewhere. Like any other ethnic area, Jackson Heights also has several Indian restaurants, like the Zagat rated but not very good Jackson Diner and Delhi Palace where you can sample some hearty Indian cuisine.
  • Very good transport connections
  • Great ethnic grocery stores
  • Colorful and Vibrant
  • Can be messy at times
  • Loud and noisy as it is heavily trafficked
  • Very commerical in nature and hosts no nightlife

"Blah, Blah, Blah"

Very boring just like all the other streets in this part of town. My great aunt lives here and I think that is enough said. There is really nothing to do except eat bad food and go to church and ask for forgiveness for living in such a boring place. Not even when I am retired I would want to live in a place like this, unless I needed to get away that much.

"Great vibe, great eats on 37th ave"

37th Ave is one of the main commercial strips in the Queens neighborhood of Jackson Heights. The "core" of the stretch is concentrated between 72nd St and 79th St and offers everything from your typical Starbucks and Dunkin Doughnuts to some really amazing Indian, Italian and Argentinian fare. Armondo's is great for Italian, La Portena has some awesome Argentinian meats, and the Jackson Diner on the corner of 74th has incredible Indian food! Other than the restaurants, there are several mini-supermarkets offering fresh veggies and rare offerings from India and Asia. Worth a visit for city residents and tourists alike.
