More about Middle Village

Middle Village was once a waypoint on Metropolitan Ave between the towns of Williamsburg, Brooklyn (yes, they were once separate), and Jamaica. Before the Civil War broke out, Middle Village was largely English farmland. After the war it saw an influx of German immigrants. Like several other central and western Queens neighborhoods (which all began as waypoints on rail lines or thoroughfares), Middle Village had rather humble beginnings. Hotels sprung up to accommodate visitors to St. Johns Roman Catholic Cemetery, the final resting place of many of NYC’s most notorious mobsters, but the housing boom of the Roaring Twenties paved the way for the residential neighborhood it is today.

Over the rest of the 20th century Middle Village became predominantly Italian and Irish American, but it has since seen the arrival of many Eastern Europeans and more recently Hispanic immigrants. Popular eats include London Lennie’s (Seafood), Barosa (Italian), Pio Pio (Peruvian), and Uvarara (Italian). Juniper Valley Park, one of the largest parks in Queens, offers a brilliant view of the Manhattan skyline and is one of the biggest draws. Three public elementary schools and Catholic elementary schools are available for children, and Christ The King Regional is the local high school, which happens to have a historically good basketball team. Famous residents past and present include health-conscious figures like Mike Repole, founder of Vitamin Water.

Transportation to Manhattan from Middle Village is available on the M line, which has a final stop at Metropolitan Avenue. The Q29, Q38, Q47, Q54, and Q67 buses serve the neighborhood locally, while the QM24 and QM25 express buses run to Manhattan. Major roads include the Long Island Expressway, Woodhaven Boulevard, and Cooper Avenue.
