Neighborhood Description

If you’re looking for a safe neighborhood with a strong, family-oriented community, Flatlands is worth looking into.

This virtually crime-free neighborhood is bounded by Ralph and Flatbush Avenues at the east and north, and by Mill Basin and Bergen Beach to the west. The proximity to these water-front communities is another selling point for this quiet and safe neighborhood.

Flatlands has long been a traditionally Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, but in the past several decades it has become host to a diverse population of Caribbean immigrants and African-Americans who have made it their home. If cultural diversity and peace and quiet, as well as good restaurants, of all different types, are what you are looking for, you will find it in Flatlands.

Being house-proud is a characteristic of this neighborhood, and although apartment buildings are scarce, neat 2-family homes, with an upstairs apartment, as well as a first-floor unit, are the defining residential structure in this well-groomed neighborhood. Flatlands, like many other communities in Queens and on Long Island, was developed during the post-World War II housing boom, and the symmetry of the homes reflects the aesthetics of that time.

The Belt Parkway links Flatlands to the Kings Plaza Shopping Center and Marina, and the enormous Marine Park, just beyond the boundaries of the neighborhood, where residents can find expansive lawns, bicycle trails, tennis courts and ballfields. Originally Flatlands was farmland settled by founded by the Dutch, and then later English started moving in. Evidence of these early European settlers can be seen in some of the architecture of Flatlands including the 17th century Dutch Reformed Church off Kings Highway, the Hendricks Lott House (circa 1720) and the Wyckoff House Museum, by many accounts the City’s oldest building.

Transportation within the neighborhood is primarily bus or car. Midtown Manhattan is easily accessible (20 minutes by private bus, which is $4 round-trip), however there is no subway service to Flatlands, and to access the train a bus ride to Flatbush Avenue to catch the 2 or 5 is required. Although a shortcoming on the face of it, this lack of subway traffic is part of what makes Flatlands safe, and such a tight-knit community – and one that is very family-friendly.
