Woodhaven, a down-to-earth neighborhood in Queens, is bordered by Forest Park to the north, Richmond Hill to the east, and Brooklyn’s Cyprus Hills to the west. Woodhaven is serviced by J and Z trains running above Jamaica Avenue along elevated tracks. A 40 minute commute will land you in lower Manhattan with transfer options along the way for connections to Midtown.
Traditionally a working-class neighborhood, Woodhaven has been called home by multiple generations of residents seeking affordability, great subway access, and proximity to the abundant green space of Forest Park. The sprawling 500-acre park has hiking trails, sports facilities, and a beloved historic carousel. The iconic Neir's Tavern, a tourist hotspot, has been featured in several popular films including Goodfellas and Tower Heist.
While New York row houses make an appearance in the Northern end of the neighborhood, it is the larger Colonial and Victorian properties which are most sought after. South of Jamaica Avenue houses are packed tighter and are a mix of single and multi-family homes. Residents of Woodhaven have long cultivated a strong sense of community and pride in their slice of NYC.
