"Excellent suburban town with one of the citys best school districts"
While Douglaston/ Little Neck is far from being a bustling place to live, this is still one of the most popular towns in Queens. It offers the quality (library and school district) of a Long Island town for the relatively low taxes of Queens. There are numerous bus lines and there is the Long Island Railroad. Parking can be troublesome, particularly on the blocks near the railroad stop or on Northern Boulevard, but there are lots of spaces on the side streets. There are plenty of restaurants and specialty (pet, art supply, etc.) stores within walking distance on its main artery, Northern Boulevard. Northern Boulevard, is also where the public library and post office are located. Due to the influx of Korean immigrants and businesses during the past few years, there are plenty of Korean restaurants. Sushi Family is phenomenal, casual, and reasonably priced, and Juice for Life has incredible smoothies and health foods. There is also a billiard hall on Northern Boulevard. While this is far from the trendiest town in Queens and certainly may not be for everyone, this is a wonderful place to have a family - without paying an arm and a leg in property taxes.
