"Wonderful neighborhood and close to Manhattan."

Rego Park is the closest neighborhood to midtown that has the magical combination of safe streets, good schools, abundant recreation, and over 500 shops and restaurants within walking distance of most properties. A local train ride to midtown takes you about 20 minutes to midtown. There are express buses from many parts of the area as well. Rego Park has that interesting diversity Queens is famous for and is a short trip to many of New York Citys most interesting ethnic enclaves. More professionals with kids have been moving in to the area in the last several areas because the schools are better than almost any other area that is a short commute to Manhattan. Rego Park is the same precinct and community board as Forest Hills, and shares a lot of the same schools and parks. Rego Park is less expensive than Forest Hills, and the buildings are of a later vintage. SWhile many lack some of the charm of older Forest Hills structures, more have parking.
Pros
  • Good schools
  • Great parks
  • Safe streets
  • Ethnic food options
  • Lots of transportation options
  • Highly diverse population
  • Quiet
  • Space to yourself & close enough to the busyness of NY

"Real good for life close to the city"

Nice quiet area that's close to the MR or EF lines for the subway. A couple of local/express buses as well that bring you to the city. Lots of parking, medical offices, & shopping areas. I really love that the area is far enough to get a little slice of quietness or privacy but a 10-20 min walk gets you back in the thick of the NY hustle and bustle. I believe Rego Park is great currently but there is a lot of room to improve local area shoppes & add transit options. QUEENS RAIL & QUEENS WAY all together now! :)
Pros
  • Quiet
  • Space to yourself & close enough to the busyness of NY
  • Lots of Sunshine
  • Ethnic food options
  • Lots of transportation options
  • Highly diverse population
Cons
  • Faily expensive housing prices
  • Traffic can get pretty bad

"Quickly changing landscape - in a good way"

This neighborhood isn’t a bad commute to the city, and though it used to resemble a suburb, it is too close to the city to have stayed that way. It now looks like much of the rest of the city – with streets lined with shops, and living spaces located on top of them. There are plenty of train lines that pass through the neighborhood, and buses if you are one of those rare New Yorkers who doesn’t do much walking. Though there is more going on in this neighborhood than in previous years, it still isn’t exactly a tourist hub. Tourists are likely to not only never visit this neighborhood, but will probably never even hear tell of it (which may be a plus for tourist-dreading residents).
