"Quiet neighborhood between Whitestone & Bayside"

Clearview is located between Whitestone and Bayside. This area includes the Clearview Golf Course, a public course that is reasonably priced and very popular with residents. The area is adjacent to the Cross Island Parkway and the Clearview Expressway, with very easy access to the Long Island Expressway and the Grand Central Parkway. Clearview is just off the Throgs Neck Bridge and is less than five minutes from the Whitestone Bridge. Travel by car is really simple, but public transportation options are limited; residents need to take the bus to the Bayside Long Island Rail Road station. If the LIRR is too expensive, they can also take the bus to the subway station in Flushing, but the bus ride will take about 45-50 minutes. Clearview is very close to the Bay Terrace shopping mall and Restaurant Row on Bell Boulevard, so there are plenty of options for shopping and eating out. For me, the biggest problem with living in Clearview is the pricing. As the town is located on the waterfront and most of the homes are multi-family private homes, townhomes, condos, or co-ops, prices are steep. Homes located on or near the golf course are even more expensive. Still, if you can afford it, this is a great neighborhood.
Pros
  • Great public golf course
  • Close to major highways
  • Close to Bayside's Restaurant Row
Cons
  • Costly home / rent prices
  • Possible highway noise
  • Few public transportation options

"A neighborhood amongst a great golf course"

Clearview is a neighborhood in Queens that is surrounded by water on its north and east frontages. The area also has a golf course situated among its resident’s dwellings. The neighborhood is costly due to both of these reasons in terms of real estate. Although, I am not a golfer, I have always lived on or near a golf course and thus understand the appeal. The homes on the golf course in Clearview are quite costly.

The Clearview Park Golf Course is located at the foot of the Throgs Neck Bridge in Queens. The golf course is noted a “top choice” for golf by many golfers all over the state. There is a newly renovated clubhouse, including a bar and grill, banquet rooms, and of course, 18 holes of fine golf.

Aside from the Golf Course eateries, there is nothing else but some chain restaurants in the neighborhood. For something a bit more local and traditional you have to travel into the city.

"Nice area, with its own golf course"

This neighborhood sits next to the Clearview Golf Course, which is something that I absolutely cannot appreciate, though I’m sure there are many who can. This is a pretty expensive place to buy a home (as is usually the case with neighborhoods on golf courses), but since the neighborhood also has a bit of waterfront property one can expect to have to shell out a bit of extra cash for real estate. There aren’t very many interesting eateries out here, not that you would travel miles to see anyway – unless you consider Applebees to be such a place. (And if you do, you can be sure to find one a bit closer to your hotel, anyway.)
