Neighborhood Description

Jamaica Estates is a wealthy, upper middle class residential neighborhood in eastern Queens north of Jamaica Hills and northeast of Jamaica.

The part of Jamaica Estates north of Grand Central Pkwy is also called “Holliswood.” It has an active community presence in the Jamaica Estates Association, and has retained its affluence, both visually and culturally, since its creation at the turn of the 20th century. It borders Briarwood to the east, Fresh Meadows to the north, Hollis Hills and Queens Village to the west, and Jamaica to the south.

Jamaica Estates was named for the same company that developed the land and kept much of its original forested, hilly aesthetic. Atypical of Queens, the roads in the community are all curved rather than laid out on a grid. The neighborhood is home to a large concentration of Modern Orthodox Jewish Americans and South Asians, but still has a sizeable presence of African Americans, which make up over 40% of the overall population. A growing Asian and Hispanic presence (20% each) have also made Jamaica Estates their home.

The Estates contain two public elementary schools, as well as an all-girls Catholic school and a parochial school. The Yeshiva University High School for Girls has also been a draw for Orthodox Jewish families. The United Nations International School for grades K-8 has a branch within driving distance. The Japanese School of New York, currently in Westchester, was also founded and based in the neighborhood until 1980. Cunningham Park and the Cunning Park Sports Center are both within walking distance to the north, while Kissena Park and Flushing Meadows Corona Park are a 10-minute drive away. St. John’s main campus is directly adjacent to the western edge of the neighborhood.

Like many affluent residential neighborhoods, Jamaica Estates does not have its own restaurants or amenities (aside from some physician’s offices). Popular restaurants in nearby Flushing and Jamaica include Acquista Trattoria, Iguanas Mexican Grill & Cantina, Fly Fox Inn, and Gan Da Sushi.

The northern terminus of the F train, 179th St, is located on the southern boundary of the neighborhood, and the 169th St is at its southwestern corner. Buses that serve Jamaica Estates include the Q1, Q2, Q3, Q17, Q30, Q31, Q36, and Q46. Several Queens-Manhattan buses that run to Midtown also serve the area, including the QM1, QM5, QM6, QM7, QM8, and x68.
