Atmosphere of Northwestern Queens

Northwestern Queens, populated by approximately 860,000 people, is made up of row houses and luxury apartment complexes near the river and large residential, middle class neighborhoods further inland. Northwestern Queens is a cultural melting pot, featuring America’s largest Chinatown, as well as healthy Greek, Hispanic, Lantinx, and Black populations amongst many others.

As the population grows, so does Queens' reputation as a center for the culinary and art world. In the last few years, many galleries have opened in Long Island City alone and restaurants both new and old have garnered a lot of popularity due to their innovation and cultural authenticity.

While neighborhoods near the East River are beginning to see some hustle, further inland is still a quiet haven for those seeking a more suburban feel while still having plenty of ways to get to the center of the action.

  • Jackson Heights, Sunnyside, Elmhurst, and Rego Park: E, F, M, and R trains.
  • Woodside, Corona, and Flushing: 7 train.

Cycling is also a great option in this part of queens. In the last ten years, the city has installed many miles of bike lanes and placed Citi Bike docking stations all over. Those stations are hard to come by once you reach Jackson Heights, but biking is still a great option out there if you have the means to acquire one.

Queens is also very car friendly, with ample parking and a large variety of ride sharing options like Uber and Lyft.


Northwestern Queens Safety

This area of Queens is home to some of the safest neighborhoods in New York. The more the population grows, the more the City invests, which means the streets are well lit and crime is consistently on the decline.

Fun Facts and History of Northwestern Queens

Queens began as several Dutch settlements in the greater colony of New Amsterdam. After the British took control in 1664, Queens was officially created as one of the city’s 12 original provinces. It would continue to be important for trade and industry throughout the revolution and the 1800’s.

Queens became a borough of New York City in 1898, and would be the fourth-most populous city in the U.S. if it were still on its own. Historically, it has been home to a wide range of immigrant communities, from the Irish and German in Astoria and Middle Village in the 1800s, to Central and South American, South Asian, and Caribbean immigrants today.

The 1964-65 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows was a highlight of Queens in the 20th century, and today the area has grown to become the most ethnically diverse county in the country. Though neighborhoods like Long Island City were considered industrial neighborhoods as recently as 2001, the rapid growth in population, business, and art have made Northwestern Queens the hotspot it is today.
