Queens neighborhoods

As the largest borough by area in New York City, Queens is also the most diverse. From Long Island City, with its high-rises, waterfront location and proximity to Manhattan to more quaint, suburban neighborhoods like Middle Village, Queens has a little something for everyone. The borough has long been a popular landing place for immigrants leading to the development of a vibrant cultural, culinary and entertainment scene. As with much of NYC, recent decades have brought about a real estate boom in Queens that has led to an influx of new residents and businesses.
