Jackson Heights has been deemed both a New York and National Historic District stretching from 93rd Street through 69th Street between Northern Boulevard and Roosevelt Avenue. Consisting of large garden apartment buildings, as well as private homes featuring beautiful architecture, and nearby private parks. These parks are restricted to invite only by those who own co-ops in the buildings surrounding them. Talk about exclusivity! The reason being for the private ownership is derived from the founding principle that Jackson Heights is a privately owned neighborhood. Far enough from the mayhem that is Manhattan, but close enough with a ten to fifteen minute commute to 53rd St and Lexington Avenue on the E express line, or the M local train, many residents don’t mind the commute. Locally, the main retail attractions are located on 37th Avenue from 72nd Street to Junction Boulevard, with more shopping options available to explore on 82nd St, 73rd St, and 74th Street between 37th and Roosevelt Avenues. As the main local playground, Travers Park hosts a year-round green market each and every Sunday for you and your family to enjoy.
