Ditmars Steinway Apartments
Queens

Ditmars is a mostly middle class, suburban neighborhood at the extreme northwest of Queens - it borders the East River to the north, Astoria Blvd (and Astoria) to the south, and LaGuardia airport to the east.

The neighborhood of Steinway within Ditmars was originally built as a company town for Steinway & Sons piano company (the namesake of Steinway Street in Astoria), but has since been rolled into the same neighborhood as Ditmars, hence “Ditmars-Steinway.” With its grid setup and rowhouse-lined canopied streets, Ditmars is a popular area for young professionals looking to escape the noise of the city, for those who fly frequently for work, or for anyone who just wants to live by the water.

Nearby Astoria Park lies right along the East River and across from Wards Island, and connects with Ralph Demarco Park further north for a great, scenic bike or jogging route. The smaller Hoyt Playground, Ditmars Park, Steinway Playground, Woodtree Playground, and Carlos R. Lillo Park are interspersed throughout the neighborhood. PS 2, PS 84, PS 85, and East River Academy serve the neighborhood as its schools. Several old churches, like St Irene Chrysovalantou, Trinity Episcopal, and Peniel Baptist feature prominently throughout the neighborhood. The popular Igloo Cafe is right off of the Astoria-Ditmars stop on the N, Q line, and the famous (or perhaps infamous) Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden are just two blocks from Astoria Blvd and the Neptune Diner.
