"Quiet suburban community near a nice park"

Located in north central Queens, Queensboro Hill is a diverse suburban community that is close to Flushing. Main Street, the area's major road, has become increasingly commercial and less residential during the past few years. Main Street is also where the New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens and the Flushing branch of the Queens library are located. The library can get overcrowded, but it is spectacular; it offers collections of periodicals, books, and DVD's in several different languages. Free classes on various useful subjects are offered frequently. This area also boasts a huge variety of different ethnic cuisines. In particular, there are loads of Asian restaurants because of the area's growing Asian population. At the same time, Queensboro Hill also houses quiet residential areas that are filled with single-family private homes. Residents also have access to Kissena Park and the Botanical Gardens. You can take one of the local buses to the subway or Long Island Rail Road station, both of which are found on Main Street in Flushing. While the commute to Manhattan takes about an hour, this neighborhood is still a popular choice with commuting professionals who have families.
Pros
  • Diverse population
  • Access to Kissena Park
  • Close to Flushing, where lots of ethnic restaurants and stores are
Cons
  • Boring
  • Fairly long commute to the city
  • Fairly expensive home prices

"Close to much: parks, baseball, and golf course"

There is a commercial area here where tourists can stock up on clothes and good eats – just don’t expect to be able to drive up and conveniently find a parking space. There happens to be an Asian eatery in the neighborhood that will deliver bubble tea – a resource that is found everywhere in NYC, in a plethora of styles, but not often delivered. This neighborhood is almost surrounded by parks, and there is plenty of affluence to go around in the surrounding neighborhood. It’s close to Shea Stadium, as well as a lot of recreational amenities like the Kissena Park Golf Course.
