"Quiet and family friendly community near Long Island"

Located close to Long Island, this Queens community evolved from a primarily Caucasian population of German, Irish, and Italian residents to a more diverse neighborhood with African American, Hispanic, and Asian residents. This is a very stable neighborhood with a good school district and several churches that are more than one hundred years old. While it has some apartment buildings and garden apartments, most of the housing is in the form of single-family private homes. There are lots of businesses on Harry Van Arsdale Jr. Avenue, as well as elder care and child care facilities. While Pomonok is still a good distance from Manhattan, there are diverse public transportation options. You can take the bus to the subway on Main Street in Flushing, or you can take one of the town's express buses. While shops and restaurants in Pomonok are not very diverse, there are many more options just a few minutes away in Flushing. This is a pretty safe town, with few major crimes. There are some cases of auto theft, but that's fairly hard to avoid when you are living in New York City. Still, there isn't much a nightlife in or near Pomonok, so it isn't a very good choice for young singles who are looking for a party town.
Pros
  • Consistent; many life-long residents
  • Diverse population
  • Very friendly, close-knit community
Cons
  • Boring
  • Fairly long commute to the city

"A quiet upclass neighborhood!"

One of my best friends live in Queens Village in New York and I hate leaving there when I go back to my home. The area has a great assortment of food places ranging from fast food to high class restaurants. The neighborhood is very suburban and has a nice upper middle class feel. It is a very quiet neighborhood. It is within a drive to Westchester, Long Island, and any of the other five boroughs so you can access anywhere from there. It is near the water so it is usually a bit cooler there. The neighborhood just gives off a great feeling of a place where you would want to raise a family and settle in.

"For those who don't want to be anywhere near Manhattan"

This middle class neighborhood is comfortably close (or uncomfortably, if you happen to be young and longing to be in the city) to Long Island. It features some shopping areas, though nothing too incredibly trendy, that can be found around Jamaica Ave, Hillside Ave, Hempstead Ave, and Springfield Blvd. There isn’t much for subway transportation out here, but residents can catch the Long Island Railroad into Penn Station for a Manhattan commute, and there are bus lines aplenty in the area. There are enough schools out here to imply that this is a place where many people move to raise their families, perhaps to get away from the chaos in the city without actually leaving the city.

"Quiet and Family-Oriented Community"

Queens Village is a neighborhood in Queens that is surrounded by other areas such as Bellerose Floral Park, Oakland Gardens, Cunningham Park, Hollis, and Cambria Heights. Queens Village is a middle-income neighborhood and in recent years the area has become more and more racially mixed.

Shopping in the area can be found along Braddock Hillside Avenue and Jamaica Avenue. Most of the area is residential though. Dutch Colonial and Tudor style homes populate the area and attract and interestingly diverse population. There is a high number of detached family houses and a wide number of apartment buildings. Overall, Queens Village is a semi-urban, quiet, and family-oriented community.

The Queens Village station offers service on the Long Island Rail Road Hempstead Branch to Jamaica station, and also to Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. The New York City bus also services the neighborhood, as well as the MTA Long Island Bus on the N routes.

There are many public schools in the neighborhood including a wide number of parochial schools. Martin Van Buren High School is in the area as well.
