Kew Gardens New York Neighborhood Review

I lived in Kew Gardens for fifteen years and recently visited the old neighborhood to find that it is still a thriving and exciting area. Located in the New York City borough of Queens, perhaps the most diverse county in the country, Kew Gardens is an upper middle class to upscale neighborhood consisting of mostly small apartment buildings and one and two family homes. There are excellent shopping areas along Metropolitan Avenue that also offer a wide choice of restaurants. They feature food from many different cultures, which reflects the many different nationalities and ethnicities that make up this culturally diverse neighborhood.

Perhaps the best supermarket is Trader Joes, located on Metropolitan Avenue near Woodhaven Boulevard. It offers many unusual brands and foods and is well priced with an emphasis on healthy eating. You are also only a short drive away from The Queens Center and Queens Plaza malls, featuring retailers like Macys, Target, Best Buy, and JC Penny. You can also drive to neighboring Forest Hills and enjoy the many restaurants and clubs along Austin Street.

Kew Gardens is convenient to both JFK and LaGauradia airports and many airport workers make their homes in this area. In fact there are two "airport" themed bars that are hangouts for these workers and are fun neighborhood establishments to visit to have a drink and to share some embracing comraderie.

For beach lovers, you can grab a bus along Woodhaven Boulevard and be at Rockaway Beach in less than 30 minutes. The drive to Jones Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world,is also about 30 minutes. And, speaking of commuting, you are just a bus ride or train ride away from midtown Manhattan. So if you work in the city, the commute is both easy and inexpensive.

Kew Gardens has been built up on a very manageable scale and it remains that way today. You can find almost any kind of entertainment from movies, to bowling, to fine dining and even dancing in this community. The school system remains excellent and offers a strong English as a second language program. There are a number of hospitals available to residents of Kew Gardens and medical care is first rate.

So if you are looking for a more affordable place to live than Manhattan, but with easy access to the city, then Kew Gardens may be right for you
