"Small & Friendly Suburb"

This is a fairly typical small New York suburb. There are lots of families and retirees, meaning that there are plenty of activities and business that cater to those demographics. It borders on Nassau County, which means that it's closer to Long Island than it is to Manhattan. There are diverse transportation options, but it can still be quite a commute to the city. The people are generally friendly and there are a lot of neighborhood events, but it is certainly not a trendy place for young people or singles. There are restaurants and shops in neighboring towns as well, so it isn't isolated, but it still gets pretty boring.

The school district is pretty good, and the area is clean and quiet. More residents have been getting FIOS lines put in, and cable Internet is pretty standard here. The cost of living is typical for a New York suburb. There really isn't a whole lot to say about this area; if you are looking for a unique or chic place to live, then this isn't for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for a small, quiet suburban town where you can live in peace with your neighbors, then consider Bellerose- Floral Park.
Pros
  • Activities for families & retirees
  • Friendly neighbors
Cons

"Great Outdoor Museum and Lots of Festivals"

Bellerose Floral Park is a neighborhood on the eastern edge of Queens along the border of Nassau County. The neighborhood is comprised of detached single-family homes.

The area is also home to the Queens County Farm Museum, which houses an array of farm animals and antique farming equipment. The Museum is a great place to take your family and enjoy a day or afternoon.

Other neighborhood attractions include St. Gregory the Great Church and School, which hosts a 10-day long festival each June, an event that is known throughout Queens and Western Nassau. The Parish's school and church are now divided by the Cross Island Parkway, and a tunnel was created to run under the Parkway to allow access between facilities.

"Standard stuff suburbs are made out of"

This area doesn’t even look like it is part of the rest of the city. It looks like a suburb you would find in New Jersey, or anyone of the ones on Long Island – which this neighborhood borders on. The neighborhood is so small that it shares a zip with the one nextdoor, Glen Oaks, so that all of the residents here receive mail that is addressed to them in Glen Oaks, which gives you an idea of the quaintness of this suburb-like neighborhood. This is no place where you will ever find a red blooded tourist worth his salt, but it is a nice place to live in New York if you want to be away from New York – if you get my drift.
