More about Richmond Hill

Historically, Richmond Hill is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods on Long Island, and was transformed from farmland into a sizeable town in the mid-19th century. To this day Richmond Hill is characterized by a number of old, large Queen Anne Victorian homes. Aside from its notoriety as the battlegrounds of the famous Battle of Long Island, however, the Hill has little in the way of remarkable history. Notable residents include Morton Gould, Phil Rizzuto, and “voice of the Yankees” Bob Sheppard.

Once a decidedly European neighborhood, Richmond Hill has seen an influx of Caribbean, West Indian and South Asian immigrants on the south side past Atlantic Ave. Popular eateries include Tu Casa (Peruvian), Roka Turkish Cuisine, Sybil’s West Indian Bakery, and Atlantic Diner. Maracas New York Nightclub is also notable for being of the few Caribbean night clubs in Queens, and is a popular destination for West Indian residents. Popular shopping destinations include the Richmond Hill Flea Market, held inside the old Bingo Hall, as well as Neena Fashions, which sells saris and kurtas.

Richmond Hill has two libraries, four parks (including Forest Park), eight public schools, seven private schools, and one high school. Transportation by subway is available at several stops on the J/Z lines and A line, including the Liberty Ave--Lefferts Blvd terminus. The Q8, Q9, Q10, QM18, Q24, Q37, Q41, Q55, Q56, and Q112 buses run through Queens. Major roads include Woodhaven Blvd and Lefferts Blvd, as well as commercial Jamaica, Atlantic and Liberty Aves.
