Neighborhood Description

Glendale is an upper-middle-class/middle-class neighborhood in central Queens that stretches along the northern border of Forest Park, the largest park in Queens.

It is notable for being smack-dab in the middle of the “cemetery belt”, which was built in Queens after cemeteries were outlawed in Manhattan after 1847. Glendale is anything but somber, however - it was known in the early 20th century for its textile and brewing companies and its excellent German restaurants. Bordering Forest Hills, Ridgewood, Woodhaven, Middle Village, and Kew Gardens, Glendale is part of the circle of central to south central Queens neighborhoods served by Forest Park. While not quite bucolic, it is still a change of pace compared to the grittier neighborhoods of eastern Queens.

“Fresh Ponds” started out as a German farming community built on former swampland and surrounded by cemeteries, which was less than ideal at the time. The name “Glendale” was a developer’s tribute to his Ohio hometown. The original neighborhood was divided into 469 lots which were sold off for $300 each back in 1869. Farming was still the name of the game until WWI, after which development along Myrtle Avenue exploded. By the early 20th century Glendale became a notable center of New York’s textile and brewing industries, and is famously the birthplace of the “Spinning Jennie.”

Since then Glendale has blossomed into a diverse residential neighborhood with a strong German, Irish, Italian, Eastern European, and Hispanic presence. Glendale is known for its shopping, which is concentrated along bustling Myrtle Avenue as well as The Shops at Atlas Park, a major shopping complex built over the old textile plants. A number of famous ale houses, like The Assembly, Woods, and Yer Man’s Irish Pub (formerly known as Cooper’s Ale House and which figures prominently on The King of Queens, bear witness to the neighborhood’s brewing past. Famous eats include Zum Stammtisch, one of Glendale’s historic German restaurants, as well as Leone’s Pizzeria, Simple Fondue, Tazzina, and the many restaurants located at The Shops, which is arguably the strongest neighborhood draw.

Glendale has three public secondary schools and four private secondary schools, as well as its own fire department. Transportation by subway is available at Fresh Pond Road on the M line and at Myrtle--Wyckoff on the L. Buses that service Glendale include the QM24, which runs to Manhattan. Major thoroughfares are the Jackie Robinson Pkwy, Woodhaven Blvd, Cooper Ave, and Myrtle Ave.
