Neighborhood Description

East Elmhurst is a lower middle class neighborhood in Queens north of Jackson Heights and Corona across 31st ave.

It is semi-encircled by LaGuardia Airport to the north, and is bounded on the east by Flushing Bay. Ditmars Steinway, a similar neighborhood, borders it to the west. East Elmhurst is very small, so it’s often lumped together with Corona as “Corona East Elmhurst.”

The neighborhood is strongly tied to African American culture and to the Harlem Renaissance and jazz in particular. The famous Fair Theater was once the stomping grounds of the likes of Langston Hughes and Louis Armstrong, both former residents. Other famous residents include(d) Ella Fitzgerald, Jackie Robinson, Eric Holder, Willie Mays, and Malcolm X.

East Elmhurst is predominantly black, but also has a sizeable white community and a significant Hispanic and Asian presence. The Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center in Corona/East Elmhurst is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of African American art, music, and literature. The adjoining Black Heritage Reference Center is a part of the Cultural Center and has over 30,000 volumes of materials relating to black culture in America.

There are 3 schools in East Elmhurst, including the Louis Armstrong Middle School. St. Michael’s cemetery is the largest green space in the small neighborhood, although St. Michael’s Playground, Bulova Park, East Elmhurst Playground, and Overlook Park are spread throughout. First Baptist Church is the largest church in East Elmhurst. A single strip mall on 31st Ave acts as a shopping center, and there are several hotels near LaGuardia airport, which is within walking distance from most parts of town. Popular east include Redd-Light Fish & Chip (and Redd-Light Restaurant), Pavilion Grille, and Empire Bar.

No subway stops are located in East Elmhurst, but bus service include the Q19, Q33, Q47, Q66, and Q72 buses. Major throughways include 31st Ave, Astoria Blvd, and Grand Central Pkwy for easy access to most of northern Queens and Flushing. The proximity to LaGuardia Airport is also very useful.
