Queens

Queens Neighborhood

More than any other borough, Queens feels like the place where the American Dream comes true. For the residents of this cultural melting pot, it’s impossible not to feel the vibrancy that comes with being an international crossroads. Queens is a foodie’s dream. From Ecuador to Nigeria, from Mexico to India, global street food and hole-in-the-wall eateries take diners on a veritable trip around the world. And several Queens restaurants are recognized for the quality and value of their cuisine by no less an authority than Michelin.

With Citi Field (home to the New York Mets) and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (the site of the US Open tennis tournament) in Queens, sports fans will cheer. And for those who crave culture, Queens offers museums like the Museum of the Moving Image, MoMA PS1, and the Noguchi Museum.

Queens neighborhoods are as distinct as its people. Located just across the East River from Manhattan, Long Island City and Astoria are perfect for commuting to Midtown, while two international airports, also make Queens convenient to nearly anywhere in the world. Families love Forest Hills’ many parks and great schools. Beach lovers adore surf-side Rockaway Beach. And Ridgewood, which borders Brooklyn, is a hipster favorite. No matter the neighborhood, there’s no denying the vitality and raw energy of this ever-changing, eclectic borough.
