"Astoria, NY"

I lived at Astoria, NY for 18 years and My oldest son still love to live same area. Ditmars Boulevard - Named after Abram D. Ditmars the mayor of Long Island City also know as "the heart of Astoria" during the 1800s is home to many diverse ethnicity's that mainly immigrated to Astoria during the 1960's to 1970's. This melting pot of foreign and American culture is home to many Greek, Italian, Cyprian, Lebanese, Italian, and Arab families and businesses. Running from Astoria Park to the LaGuardia Airport many Astoria residents have named the surrounding are of Ditmars Boulevard to simply "Ditmars" Starting from the scenic view of the Robert F. Kennedy bridge, Hells Gate bridge and of the always lightened Manhattan, Astoria park is also home to New York City's largest public pools. These pools are home to many memories of the locals and are equipped with many diving boards and pools of different depths for the age and experience gaps between the pool users. The green relaxed environment has a picnic area that is home to free concerts during the summer. Paths walk you along the park while trees and the greenery relax you and give you a calming place to walk your dog or to practice yoga. On the other side of the park Astoria Park has basketball and tennis courts. Along with those parks a regulation track and workout area is open throughout the week for constant enjoyment. On the corner of 19th street and Ditmars Boulevard is home to a local Greek restaurant favorite "Agnati" is able to satisfy your Greek food hungers with a stunning cuisine straight from Mount Olympus.


Astoria Pool
Progressing further up Ditmars Boulevard a clash of modern Astoria culture seems to quietly blend in with the the old. The famous "Pizza Palace" is still in business after many years while adjacently and diagonally facing new neighbors. On the corner of Ditmars Boulevard and 31st street and in the immediate area one may feel the city hustle and bustle due to the many banks, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and the N and W train. The N and W train being the main mode of public transportation does not seem to disappoint it's local riders. The new trains, cleanliness, convenient stops and reliable service makes Astoria residents happy whether it may be a student going to school, or an adult going to work. The N and W trains run from the Ditmars area through Manhattan and eventually to Brooklyn stopping at Time Square, Herald Square, NYU and 59th and Lexington.

Moving along Ditmars Boulevard the diversity pops out to the visitor while seeming normal to locals. Russian barbershops border Japanese cuisine and Thai restaurants border Arab deli's. New chic restaurants replace the old boring ones with their own "spice" such as Mojave a new South Eastern restaurant located on 31st between Ditmars and 23rd Avenue. The strong combination of excellent food, great service and bar full of exotic cocktails are available at this hip restaurant that draws crowds of all ages looking for a good time. Home to many apartment buildings the Ditmars area is very appealing to those who want that Manhattan feeling without that city price. Everything is available on or right off Ditmars Boulevard. Apparel and footwear stores are abundant. Footlocker on 31st between Ditmars and 23rd avenue allows you to keep in style with your footwear and athletic apparel. Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Baptist churches are located in the close vicinity and always have full sermons. Ditmars laundry, florists, Spanish Food and pharmacies located directly on Ditmars Boulevard makes Ditmars an even more convenient location with every need able to be met with just a short walk.

Reading all of this the prospective Ditmar's resident would ask: why Ditmars? Ditmars is a safe community of different people of many origins that shows Americas agreeableness to coexist with others in a peaceful happy way. The Bohemian Beer Garden near the Astoria Boulevard train stop is a great place for socialization gaining popularity as one of New York's States few beer gardens still in existence. The Ditmars area is home to schools such as P.S. 122 and I.S 141 right off Ditmars. Parks are always nearby chock full of kids playing baseball and joggers getting their daily workout done. The Upper Ditmars area is full of proud homeowners who take pride in the Ditmars name, revealing it in their new elaborate homes. While Ditmars is rooted in history, the changes are only for the good and make the Ditmars Boulevard area a great place to live and enjoy your life.

"So Near Yet So Far"

When people refer to the neighborhood of Long Island City they generally seem to be talking about the fast developing neighborhood of Hunter’s point which is in fact just one of the many neighborhoods of Long Island City in Queens. This neighborhood which is located one stop away from Midtown on the number 7 train is essentially an industrial neighborhood which is currently undergoing rapid gentrification.
This favored area of Long Island City is actually known as Hunters Point and a couple of years ago we spent many a weekend there as we were considering buying into one of the many new condominium developments which are coming up at the edge of the East River. Many of these developments are actually old time warehouses which are being redeveloped into swanky loft type residences with all the necessary accouterments like gyms, swimming pools and party rooms. Since we were exploring the neighborhood on the weekends we had a chance to get a real feel for the neighborhood which actually seemed rather desolate in spite of all the hectic construction activity.
I am sure this is not the case during the work week for the neighborhood actually hosts quite a few important buildings like the Citibank Tower on Court Square, the mixed use Queens West Towers and the Long Island City Court House along with famed landmarks like Silver Cup Studios , the P.S.1 art space which an outpost of the MOMA museum, the Socrates Sculpture Park and 5 Pointz which is an artist’ outdoor exhibit space.
During our expeditions in Long Island City we actually came across a real cool speakeasy called Dutch Kills which served some amazing cocktails in a fantastic old world ambiance . This bar alone would give us reason enough to come back to Long Island City even though at the end of our meanderings we had decided we didn’t really want to move to Long Island City in spite of the fact that proceeds from the sale of our Manhattan apartment would probably fetch us more living space and even a car parking allotment in one of the swanky new towers which are being erected all over the neighborhood.
Pros
  • So close to Manhattan but devoid of the buzz
  • Famous landmarks
  • Great museums in the area
  • Mixed bag
Cons
  • Industrial looking in spite of the gentrification
  • Rather desolate and dead on the weekends

"Tidy Suburb at the end of the F train"

I tend to visit the neighborhood of Jamaica Estates when I visit my friends who live in the neighborhood of New Hyde Park in Long Island which is located close by. Jamaica Estates is located on the last stop of the F train from Manhattan at the 179th street and we usually get the subway from Manhattan to get to this stop, after which our friends come and get us and drive us to their home.
Jamaica Estates is bounded by the main highway of the Union Turnpike to the north and it has Hillside Avenue as its Southern Boundary though the area around the subway station is downright grotty(unpleasant) as drunks and layabouts seem to hang out there perennially. Hillside Avenue which is home to yet another Little India of NYC is populated by several South Asian restaurants, sweet shops and salons which offer reasonable beauty services.
The neighborhood of Jamaica Estates has much history associated with it as it was developed in the early 1920’s as an enclave for wealthy New Yorkers. Tudor-style homes which were built during this time continue to dominate the real estate scenario of this neighborhood which has a typical suburban feel with clean, tidy streets and well tended front-yards.
Jamaica Estates also offers good schooling options as it is home to several well regarded public, charter and private schools like P.S. 131 Abigail Adams, P.S.86, P.S.95 Eastwood, P.S. Is 268, Jamaica High School, Merrick Academy- Queens Public Charter School and the Queens outpost of the United Nations International School which is located on Croydon Road.
Aside from the F train which serves stations at 179th Street and 169th street, the neighborhood is also served by Queens buses and express buses which are used by commuters who need to travel to Midtown Manhattan everyday though if you are planning to live in Jamaica Estates you would most likely have to invest in a car to get around.
Pros
  • Clean and tidy
  • Good schooling options
  • Quiet and tranquil

"L.I.C. - Artistic and Big"

If you ever visited Long Island City, you will find it has a long history. Long Island City is the westernmost neighborhood of the borough of Queens. The city is also the largest neighborhood in Queens. L.I.C. is well known for its waterfront parks, and thriving arts community.

In fact, L.I.C. has the most number of art galleries, art institutions, and studio space of any neighborhood in New York City.

If you were to look back in history, you would find that Long Island City was the home to many factories and bakeries. These places have been renovated and are now providing new type of businesses.

For example, the former Silvercup Bakery is now called Silvercup Studios, which produces such shows as The Sopranos. You will also see 5 Pointz. This is a place that houses artists' studios. You can see it from the Court House Square Station on the 7 train as it is covered with graffiti.

If you lived here for a long time, you might remember Eagle Electric. They were here for a long time. Eventually, they moved operations to China. Now the place is being converted to residential luxury lofts.

Long Island City is also the home of the largest fortune cookie factory in the United States, owned by Wonton Foods. They produce as much as four million fortune cookies a day there. if you order from Fresh Direct, you may be surprised to know they are also headquartered in Long Island City on Bordon Ave.

Another point about Long Island City to keep in mind is their manufacturing facilities. Do you know Brooks Brothers, the famous tie making place, is headquartered there.

As you can see Long Island City does have a rich past and productive present and future.

"Queensbridge Park - What a Treat"

If you like to be some place beautiful. Go down Vernon Blvd right after you go over the Queensboro Bridge and you will see Queensbridge Park. It is so attractive of an area as compared to Vernon Blvd in Ravenswood. The strip in Ravenswood is nothing to look at. The buildings are old and ugly looking. Some buildings are closed permanently. Not a great place to hang out. But when you walk down to the Queensbridge Park, it is like you are in a completely different location.

Based on my experience with being there, I would have to say that the time it takes to get to the Queensbridge Park, after crossing the Queensboro Bridge is worth it.

"What was once a home away from home, is now a home unlike any other."

Greek. Italian. Moroccan. Mexican. The cuisine, like the people, is as diverse as any neighborhood in New York. What originally was a quiet neighborhood for the Greek and Italian expats in NYC has become one of the hippest and best places to live for the up-and-comers. The Greeks still run most of this part of town, but all that means to the new tenant is parties 7 days a week rain,sleet or snow, the newest techno music, and diners that make gyros as good as they do omelets. Clean, quiet and a close 15 minute cab, subway or bike-ride away from Manhattan - it's easy to see why Astoria is fast becoming much more than a food-lovers haven.

"An excellent neighborhood"

I had lived in Flushing for most of my childhood. Flushing is often associated with Main Street, where Chinese restaurants are all around. The interesting thing about Chinese food in Flushing is that you really get every kind of Chinese food available -- northern food, southern food, taiwanese food, Hong Kong food, everything. There are many stores such as Macy's and the Gap that you can shop at as well. Don't forget the frozen yogurt at PinkBerry!

While Flushing is often known for being the 2nd Chinatown, the part of Flushing I lived in was much quieter, as it was closer to a park and a cemetery. PS 107, a local elementary school, is one of the best schools around as the teachers have a dedication to every single student.

"Bayside: Beautiful, Clean and Full of Things to Do!"

Living in Bayside, NY my entire life has been great. The area is full of beautiful homes, nice parks and is clean and safe. If you are interested in schools the area has a two great elementary schools in PS 31 which is located on Bell Boulevard and PS 169 also located off Bell Boulevard in Bay Terrace.

Bell Boulevard is sort of the central hub of activity in Bayside. It is very well known for its restaurants, shops and nightlife. There is literally something for anyone on Bell. If Italian food is your thing head over the Vesuvios for tremendous pasta. If pizza is your thing hit up VI Pizza which has been a staple of Bayside life for over 40 years. Want some Thai food? Erawan provides great Thai food at affordable prices with a lovely atmosphere. If nightlife is more your scene then you can hit up one of Bell's many many bars including First Edition, where you can catch virtually any game on TV, or Sullivans located right by the Long Island RailRoad.

That's another feature of Bayside that makes it highly convenient. Right on Bell Boulevard is a Long Island RailRoad stop. If you're looking to do something in Manhattan, such as a Rangers or Knicks game or to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, you can hop on the LIRR and be there in twenty minutes.

If shopping is more your area of interest then you can head down to Bay Terrace. Bay Terrace is located just off Little Neck Bay and hosts a variety of stores from small shops to major chain retailers to restaurants. Just a few of the stores located there include Applebees, Barnes & Noble, Duane Reade, Gap and Gamestop. You can pretty much find anything you're looking for in Bay Terrace.

Bayside is also a beautiful place for a family. The crime rate is low and the streets are clean. It also provides some beautiful scenery during the Fall and Winter months, particularly when it snows. Croucheron Park is simply lovely during the Fall as the leaves begin to change colors and fall from the trees.

In short if you're looking for a great place to live in NYC then check out Bayside in Queens. You will not be disappointed.

"Safe, close to the city"

Forest Hills is a stone's throw away from Manhatten making the neighborhood an easy commute. A mixture of singles, families and established residents make up the population. Great elementary schools, high schools can leave something to be desired. Shopping, something for everyone, clothes, food, coffee shops, yes even some that are not Starbucks!

Love to eat? Forest Hills has you covered, Chinese, Thai, Sushi, Steak.....some great options, and a brand new restaurant just opened is "aged" if you love steak, be sure and stop by for a visit.

"Great area for your family"

Fresh Meadows is a neighborhood in Queens that provides some open spaces and top-ranked schools. This is a great place for young families. Both of the public and private schools in the area offer an array of special programs that challenge the students. Francis Lewis High School is the neighborhood’s high school and has the only Army Junior R.O.T.C. program in Queens. There are seven advanced placement courses, and over time perhaps more in the works, as well as University Scholars Programs, in which gifted students take college-courses (including genetic engineering) while in high school.

Also in the area is the 211-acre Cunningham Park, with 20 tennis courts, 28 baseball fields, a walking path, nature trail, 6 soccer fields and 4 playgrounds. Residents may also bike or walk along a portion of the former Vanderbilt Motor Parkway, built in 1906 as a race track and later a private toll road that once extended to Lake Ronkonkoma on Long Island.

"This neighborhood has just about everything"

Flushing is a neighborhood in north central Queens. It is surrounded by College Point, Whitestone, Murray Hill, and Flushing Meadow Corona Park.

Flushing is a thriving business and residential area. It is known for its selection of authentic, reasonably priced ethnic restaurants. The most popular Asian restaurant district is centered at the intersection of Prince Street and Roosevelt Avenue. Latino cuisine can also be found on College Point Boulevard near Sanford Avenue.

The Queens Borough Public Library, located at the intersection of Kissena Boulevard and Main Street, is the largest branch library in New York City. The library has developed into a valuable community resource and houses an auditorium for public events. The current building, designed by Polshek Partnership Architects, is the third to be built on the site - the first was a gift from Andrew Carnegie.

Flushing is host to world-class sporting events. Shea Stadium is home to Major League Baseball's New York Mets, and the United States Tennis Association USTA National Tennis Center is home to the U.S. Open tennis tournament.

Queens College, a senior college of the City University of New York, is located in Flushing. CUNY School of Law is next door and it also contains a public-interest law firm, Main Street Legal Services, that serves Flushing's predominantly immigrant and working-class communities.

"Close to two large airports"

Forest Hills is a neighborhood in central Queens that is surrounded by Corona to the north, Rego Park to the west, Forest Park to the south, and Flushing Meadow Corona Park to the east. The area is home to a mix of upper to middle class residents with most of the upper class living in the prestigious Forest Hills Gardens area.

There are more than ten synagogues located in the area which is quite a draw for many Jewish New Yorkers. The Jewish population has increased over the years. It is also home to many airline pilots because of its proximity to both JFK International and LaGuardia airports. JetBlue is based there as well.

The neighborhood contains areas of private houses with little commerce, such as the Gardens area, dense commercial districts full of stores and large apartment complexes, and streets with the six-story brick apartment buildings common throughout Queens.

The main thoroughfare is the 12-lane-wide Queens Boulevard. Metropolitan Avenue is known for its antique shops. The commercial heart of Forest Hills is a mile-long stretch of Austin Street, a block removed from Queens Boulevard, that features an eclectic (though increasingly upscale) collection of shops, restaurants and nightlife.

"Great community vibe, safe neighborhood"

This is a highly residential area, and what always strikes me out here is just how much walking you actually have to do to get around (unless of course you plan on bussing around). New Yorkers are prone to walking anyway, but out here the trains don’t visit every cul-de-sac out here, so if you move out here the odds are high that you will be walking a lot, even for a New Yorker (unless you have a car, which it seems many people out here actually do). This is a very safe, residential place were many families live.

"Well established, ethnically diverse area of New York"

Queens is a conglomerate of so many different ethnic groups and cultures - halal meat on one corner, empanadas and pupusas on the next, with an Italian bakery in the middle of the block. Catholic churches abound, though one has lost its church school in the last couple of years because of a shortage of kids interested in going there. On one end of Queens is La Guardia Airport; and on the other end is Kennedy Airport. Traffic can start gathering very early in the morning and just not quit all day. Nice weather brings road constructions on the many bridges and this affects the traffic as well. Just when you think you've figured out a "back way" to where you're going, construction crews come in and start setting out cones.

Always something going on, plenty of little places to check out, lots of good places to eat family style. Though transected by Grand Central Parkway, the different ethnic groups hold the neighborhoods that make up Queens together. There is nothing like the view from Astoria Park towards Manhattan, and the rents are only 1/2 to 1/3 (or less) than anything you would pay "in town." In the same way it takes a special type of person to live in Manhattan (i.e., "I'm just not a bridge and tunnel person"), Queens has so many types of all kinds of people.
