Ridgewood Apartments
Queens

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.

More about Ridgewood

Since then Ridgewood has become home to Italians, Romanians, Yugoslavians, Poles, and more recently Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Ecuadorians. Today it is a mostly residential neighborhood with shopping hotspots along Myrtle Avenue and Fresh Pond Road.

Locations of note include the Ridgewood Savings Bank (the largest mutual savings bank in New York State), the Onderdonk House, and the Ridgewood Theater, and thirteen national historic districts like the Stockholm Street Historic District. Ridgewood is also home to 8 public schools and 1 high school. Popular eats include Tortilleria Mexicana, Northeast Kingdom, Arepera Guacuco, and Bunker Vietnamese. Ridgewood is also very close to the Forest Park golf course and Victory field parks.

The M train runs through the heart of Ridgewood, while the L train serves Myrtle Avenue. The B13, B20, B26, B38, B39, B52, B54, Q 54, Q55, and Q58 bus lines also serve Ridgewood and make stops at the Fresh Pond Bus Depot.
