Kew Gardens

If you’re one to enjoy rides on the Jackie Robinson Parkway, Grand Central Parkway, or even the Van Wyck Expressway, then Kew Gardens is a place to consider calling home. Conveniently located near the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens subway station, your commute to midtown Manhattan can be roughly 30 minutes on the E or F train. As a majority residential neighborhood, Kew Gardens offers a commercial center to cater to residents on Lefferts Boulevard between Metropolitan Avenue and Austin Street. There is an abundance of culture as Kew Gardens has a number of food outlets to offer including: Caribbean restaurants, Indian restaurants, Spanish restaurants, European and Arab minimarkets, and Kosher delis. Home of Austin’s Steak and Ale House, Dani’s Pizza, and the Kew Gardens cinema, there’s plenty to explore within the neighborhood as most businesses are locally owned. As both JFK and LaGuardia airport are centrally located to Kew Gardens, there is a dense population of airline personnel living in the neighborhood to catch the Q10 airport shuttles. Delta Air Lines and a couple others even have shuttles running especially for their pilots and flight attendants. Recent new developments of apartment complexes and multi-family homes have caused an influx of young professionals and Manhannites looking for spacious apartments and a more suburban setting.
