Since it began as a small suburb of Flushing, Queensboro Hill has remained quite small, although it houses over 45,000 residents in an area of only 1.4 square miles.
Like East Flushing, Queensboro Hill is still sort of a suburb of Flushing. Over 50% of current residents are Asian or Asian American, 20% are Hispanic, and 20% are white. There is little in the way of existing history on the neighborhood.
Queensboro Hill is a middle class residential neighborhood in eastern Queens that borders Flushing to the north, Fresh Meadows to the south, Bayside to the east, and Flushing Meadows Park and Corona to the west.
One noteworthy aspect of Queensboro Hill is that it is the location of the Queens Botanical Garden, and is within walking distance from Flushing Meadows Park (and the Flushing Meadows Golf Center), Kissena Corridor Park, and Kissena Park, making it one of the most pedestrian neighborhoods available in Queens. Queens College’s main campus is within driving distance to the south, and Townsend Harris High School (one of the most prestigious humanities high schools in New York) is in the same area.
Main St is the main source of commercial business. Above the Long Island Expy (which bisects the neighborhood horizontally), the main restaurants are New Bodai, Lake Pavilion, Tea Shop 168, and Asian Gourmet. Further north a branch of the New York Hospital Queens sits adjacent to Kissena Corridor Park.
Transportation is available on the Q17, Q20, Q25, Q34, Q44, Q58, Q64, Q88, and QM4 buses, mostly at stops around the Queens College campus. The interchange of the Van Wyck Expy and the Long Island Expy is located at the western edge of the neighborhood. Other major roads include College Point Blvd, Main St, and Kissena Blvd.
