Neighborhood Description

Briarwood is a small middle class neighborhood southeast of Flushing Meadows Park, bordering Jamaica Hills to the east, Kew Gardens to the west, and Flushing further north.

It is a rather diverse community compared to its neighbors and is known for its large population of African American, Hispanic, and Asian residents. The European-American community is becoming a minority (at 27% in 2000), while the black, Hispanic, and Asian populations are continuing to grow (33% and 30%, and 14% respectively).

Like nearby Forest Hills and Kew Gardens, Briarwood was once known for its large Jewish population. Named for the Briarwood Land Company, which developed the land in 1905 as an affordable community for the middle class, Briarwood is one of the newest neighborhoods in Queens. The area picked up in the 1920s, and in the 1940s New York Life Insurance and the United Nations built additional housing for employees, and US diplomats like Ralph Bunche have called Briarwood home. The community’s small size gives it a cozy, out of the way feel - leading some residents of Queens to call it the “hidden gem.” Famous residents of Briarwood include New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, actor David Caruso, and talk show host John Kerwin.

Parkway Village, a garden apartment complex built by the UN for diplomats, houses a small international presence. There are three public schools as well as a Catholic private high school, and one public library. The two main shopping strips are on Parson Blvd, south of Grand Central, and Queens Blvd between Main Street and Hillside Ave. Popular restaurants include Panorama Cafe, Hado Sushi, John’s Pizzeria, and Alba Ristorante.

Since Briarwood is near the geographic center of Queens, transportation options are readily available. Subway service can be found at Briarwood--Van Wyck Blvd for the E train and at HIllside--Parsons, Hillside--Sutphin, and Van Wyck/Briarwood on the F train. The LIRR is also stops in nearby Kew Gardens, as well as Jamaica. Connections are available to the Q20A/B, Q44,Q60, X63, X64, and X69 buses. Major roads are Queens Blvd, Parsons Blvd, Union Tpke, and Hillside Ave.
