Neighborhood Description

Jackson Heights is one of the most populated neighborhoods in Queens.

It is also one of the most historically important, and is a New York City Historic District. Back in 1916, Jackson Heights was developed as the first garden city community built in the United States, and was originally envisioned as a neighborhood for upper middle class workers to raise their families. This is why “garden apartment buildings” are common. These apartments typically wall off a block, and at the center of each complex is a private garden for the enjoyment of residents.

Since the neighborhood was built shortly after the 7 line was constructed, it became a natural crossroads. Much of Jackson Heights is dominated by the 74th Street transportation hub on Roosevelt Avenue, which services nearly all the trains in Queens, and nearly all its buses.

Unsurprisingly, the neighborhood’s convenience has attracted a large and diverse population. The private garden apartments are perhaps the least noteworthy feature of Jackson Heights, which is now one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the nation. A sizeable South Asian and Indian/Bengali presence can be found right next to the 74th street hub (where Roosevelt Avenue and Broadway intersect), with sari stores and East Indian jewelry shops a common sight nearby. There is a significant Colombian and Peruvian population, as well as a large East Asian population. Roosevelt Avenue is probably one of the only places in the nation where Irish pubs, Korean churches, and Hispanic restaurants can be seen side by side on the same block.

When it comes to things to do, places to shop, and places to eat in Queens, Jackson Heights is unrivaled. Aside from the hustle and bustle of Roosevelt Avenue, there is a shopping district on 82nd Street and an assortment of diners along Northern Boulevard. Roosevelt Avenue is home to a large number of retailers, restaurants, and pubs, and the East Indian community adjacent to the 74th Street hub is one of a kind. Big eats include Pio Pio (Peruvian), Jackson Diner (Indian), Sammy’s Halal (a halal cart right outside the hub that Queens residents swear is better than Halal Guys in Manhattan), and Mama’s Empanadas.

Travers Park is the main playground, and a year-round green market takes place there every Sunday morning. There are 7 public schools in the neighborhood and 3 private schools, including the Monsignor McClancy Memorial High School and the Garden School.

The 74th Street Roosevelt Avenue/Broadway transportation hub (the Port Authority of Queens) serves every train that runs through Queens except for the G line. Commuting to midtown Manhattan takes about 15-20 minutes. 74th Street Broadway is one of only two stops in Queens where the 7 train intersects the IND Queens Boulevard Line (E,F,M,R), and the transportation hub also houses the Victor A. Moore Bus Terminal, which serves as a hub for the Q32, Q33, Q47, Q49, and Q53, and Q70 buses. The Q70 stops at LaGuardia Airport. Major thoroughfares through Jackson Heights include Roosevelt Avenue, Broadway, and Northern Boulevard.
