South Ozone Park Apartments

South Ozone Park, known for its airy breezes, is a middle class neighborhood in southern Queens near Jamaica Bay and north of John F Kennedy Airport.

More a mini-neighborhood within the larger neighborhood of Ozone Park, South Ozone Park is nonetheless a distinct community with its own housing sections. Despite its name, the neighborhood actually lies to the east of Ozone Park, and borders Richmond hills to the north, Jamaica to the east, and Howard Beach to the southwest.

Like Ozone Park, South Ozone Park was developed back in the early 20th century with low-cost housing for Manhattan workers who couldn’t afford the upscale properties closer to the city, such as those found in Kew Gardens and Forest Hills. Originally a predominantly Italian-American community, South Ozone Park is now home to a diverse population that includes a significant presence of Indians, Bangladeshi, and Guyanese immigrants. Italian-Americans are still present in certain parts of the neighborhood, namely the southwestern sections near the Conduit. Like many other parts of eastern Queens, the neighborhood is undergoing development to accommodate the spillover of new residents in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
