Neighborhood Description

Maspeth is an ideally-situated middle-class community in Queens that borders Woodside and Sunnyside to the north, Long Island City to the north west, and Brooklyn to the south.

It is a more residential neighborhood with cozy blocks of suburban homes to the south side of Queens Boulevard. The northernmost part of Maspeth is only a few minutes walk from Queens Blvd and Queens Center Mall, but the rest of Maspeth is quietly tucked away near parks and old freight lines that are rarely ever used.

Like many neighborhoods in Queens, Maspeth started out as a Dutch settlement in the 17th century, when it was known as Maspat as early as 1642. In fact, Maspeth was the first European settlement in Queens, and it was even razed by Native Americans. After the raid, Maspat was renamed Middleburg, and Middlebury eventually split off into Elmhurst and what we now call Maspeth. From 1925 to 1939, Maspeth was notable for being home to a large population of Gypsies. It was also home to the emblematic Elmhurst Gas Tanks, which were a staple of the Queens “skyline” until 1996.

Today, Maspeth is largely working class/middle class with a large population of Eastern European (especially Polish), Italian, Irish, German, Chinese, and Hispanic residents. Popular eats include Rosa’s Pizza & Pasta, Good Eats Diner, Joey’s Pizza, and Connolly’s Corner. Maspeth is home to the Metropolitan Oval, a soccer complex, and 7 schools, including the newly opened Maspeth High School. There is also a September 11 memorial in Maspeth dedicated to the local firehouse on 69th street, which suffered more casualties in the World Trade Center attacks than any other FDNY firehouse.

There are no MTA subway stops in Maspeth, although several are only a few minutes away by foot (including Grand Ave on the R, M and Middle Village Metropolitan on the M). To make up for it, Maspeth is served by a number of buses, including the B57, Q18, Q39, Q47, Q58, Q59, and Q67. Major thoroughfares include the Queens/Midtown Expy, Flushing Ave, and Grand Ave.
