"Diverse middle-class community"

Located close to JFK Airport and Brooklyn, Ozone Park is a blue collar community where residents tend to stay their whole lives, so everyone knows each other and there are families with several generations all living here. The population is very diverse with a pretty good mix of Irish, German, Italian, African American, Hispanic, and Asian residents. There is a very wide range of housing options in very different price ranges, which accounts for the community's economic diversity. Homes are primarily pre-war single or multi-family homes. One part of Ozone Park is a village of Tudor-style homes. While there are few new constructions in Ozone Park, a lot of homes were renovated during the last housing boom. While the town has mostly small family businesses, there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby on Cross Bay Boulevard and locals also frequent the Aqueduct Flea Market. The town is fairly safe; the biggest problems are with parking, graffiti, and people who illegally rent out their basements (adding to the parking problems). There are lots of schools in this area, but there are still problems with overcrowding, again because people keep illegally renting out rooms and basements.
Pros
  • Diverse population
  • A lot of transportation options
  • Lots of schools
Cons
  • Long commute to the city
  • Boring

"Good middle-class neighborhood in Queens"

Border: Atlantic Avenue, the western border is the county line with Brooklyn (mostly Drew Street ), the southern border is South Conduit Avenue, with the eastern of border is 108th Street .

Ozone Park is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Queens, filled with a distinctive history, is home to wonderful people, including several celebrities, and is a great example of true New York City living experience. Ozone Park is now home to a varied population of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans African-Americans, South Asians, South American, and Latin American people. Ozone Park is a mainly residential area, without much to offer in terms of entertainment. Real Estate prices vary from section to section, as the socio-economic status varies greatly. Two bedroom homes can sell for as little as $300,000, a steal in New York City. Some homes in the neighborhood are quite large, and many are rented out by several tenants. Community is an important part of life in Ozone Park and it is very much a family neighborhood. Ozone Park has nine public schools and lots of parks, making it a convenient place for people with children to live. Ozone Park is an accessible neighborhood; nearby John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport, as well as access to public buses and the subway make Ozone Park a desirable location for people looking for something more low-key that’s a hop, skip, or a ride away from the more bustling sections of town. Ozone Park, though simple, is a unique neighborhood in Queens and a wonderful place to live.

Transportation: Q7, Q21, Q41, Q11, Q8, Q24 and the Q53 public buses; the A subway train services Liberty Avenue.

"City Suburbia for Families"

The further one gets from the city, the less the neighborhoods are recognizable as the stereotypical New York-style neighborhood (one that features streets jam packed with businesses and residential buildings). This neighborhood is an example of a neighborhood that an outsider wouldn’t necessarily recognize as being in New York – there are a lot of single-family homes (as well as attached homes) and there are actual spaces between the buildings, the main source of the disconnection between this and the usual city neighborhoods. It looks a bit like a dirtier, more run down version of a suburb. If you need to get to Manhattan from here, beware: your journey will most likely involve both a bus and a train, unless you have a car (and then you should beware of having a car once you get to Manhattan).

"Great Area for Everyone"

Ozone Park is a quiet area full of mostly Italian, Irish and Spanish residents. Most people are friendly in the area and two malls are not too far away by public transportation or car. Not many restaurants are in the area however the nearest mall has a Chili's. The night scene is somewhat dull unless one would decide to travel out of the town to the near by areas.

"Popular Horse Racing Track and Lots of Schools"

Ozone Park is a southwestern neighborhood in Queens that is surrounded by Woodhaven to the north, Cypress Hills to the west, Howard Beach to the south, and South Ozone to the east. The primarily middle class neighborhood is home of the Aqueduct Racetrack, a popular spot for thoroughbred racing.

Ozone Park is becoming one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in all of New York City. It is richly diverse and becoming more and more ethnically rich. The residents are mainly middle class working families with Italian or German heritage. Residents either rent or own private homes along the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets. There are a few pockets of wealthier areas located along the southern part of the community near the Belt Parkway.

There are a number of public and private schools in the area. Some of the more well known schools include P.S. 63, P.S. 64, John Adams High School, Little Dolphin Pre-School, and Divine Mercy Catholic Academy.
