Ridgewood Apartments

Ridgewood is more residential than other neighborhoods in Queens like LIC, Astoria, Woodside, etc., but still isn’t “suburban” like Bayside and other neighborhoods closer to Long Island proper.

It enjoys the convenience and multicultural vibe of western Queens, but is also quiet enough that anyone looking for a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city won’t be disappointed. Ridgewood borders Maspeth, Middle Village, and Glendale, as well as Bushwick and East Williamsburg (i.e. Brooklyn).

Ridgewood is historically Dutch, and the Vander Ende-Onderdonk House erected in 1709 is the oldest Dutch Colonial stone house in New York City. In the early 20th century a large number of German immigrants moved into Ridgewood as well. Many of Ridgewood’s buildings were developed at the turn of the 20th century as German-American housing, and are visually distinct from the rowhouses and brown houses in Bushwick because of their exposed brick construction.
