Neighborhood Description

Kew Gardens is one of seven neighborhoods in Queens developed as a planned garden community (others include Sunnyside and Jackson Heights) in the late 19th century.

It is a small, upper middle-class neighborhood north of Richmond Hill and west of Forest Hills, bounded by Metropolitan Ave. to the south, Union Turnpike and Forest Park to the west, and Interstate 678 to the east.

Like nearby Rego Park, Kew Gardens wasn’t really a neighborhood at all until the early 20th century. Before 1915, when the first apartments were built, Kew Gardens had been little more than a hotel and a LIRR station called Hopedale (named after the hotel). The station served primarily as a destination for mourners visiting the large Maple Grove Cemetery. In the 1890s the Queens Bridge Golf Course was added for variety, and in 1910 plans were underway to develop the land into a community called Kew Gardens (named after the famous botanical gardens in Kew, England).

As such, Kew Gardens is home to a number of famous apartments, including Colonial Hall and Kew Hall, as well as the old Kew Bolmer. Like Forest Hills neighboring ‘hoods, Kew Gardens homes were built in the late British and neo-Tudor styles to attract upper middle class residents. In 1933 the Grand Central Parkway was opened, and shortly thereafter the subway line to Jamaica was opened as well, paving the way for high rise apartments like Kent Manor.

Today, Kew Gardens retains much of its garden community architecture and feel. Kew Gardens is predominantly white, but also has a significant Hispanic population and a smaller Asian presence. A sizeable Jewish population is reflected in the number of active synagogues in the area. There are also smaller enclaves of Uzbekistanis, Pakistanis, Israelis, and Iranians. Popular eats include Dani’s House of Pizza, Austin’s Ale House (and nearby steakhouse), Odradek’s Coffee House, and Cocina Latina. The famous Kew Gardens Cinemas shows independent international films, while Comic Den adds a twist to the usual retail offerings.

There is only one public school in Kew Gardens, PS 99, but there are also several Jewish schools, like Yeshiva Tifereth Moshe, Bais Yaakov of Queens and Yeshiva Shaar Hatorah. Forest Park, one of the largest parks in Queens, is shared with nearby Forest Hills.

Residents of Kew Gardens can get to Manhattan by way of the E or F trains that stop at the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens station. Several buses pass through Kew Gardens, and the main thoroughfares are Union Turnpike and Metropolitan Ave. I-678 leads upstate.
