Queens Real Estate Market Overview

Queens is New York City's answer to suburbia. And while the many families living there would happily agree, there's plenty more to it than that. More languages are spoken in this borough alone (among them, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Greek, Russian, Tagalog, and Creole French) than in any other single place on the planet. The ethnically steeped (and relatively affordable) housing markets of Astoria, Dutch Kil...ls, Hunters Point, and Sunnyside are equally beloved by residents old and new. Long Island City is increasingly referred to as "the next Williamsburg." Sleek waterfront high-rises, modern amenities, and even a flea market make it a go-to for young professionals looking to carve out a place of their own just outside the midtown fray.View more

Moments in Queens

Insider Tips: Where to Go



Start your day with a crack-of-dawn yoga session at Socrates Sculpture Park. Bask in the sunshine, waterfront views, and shimmering windmill art installations. Grab a fresh-squeezed juice. Take a selfie. Sit a while.



Spend the afternoon munching through one of the city's most diverse and savory street food scenes, Jackson Heights. You'll find authentic (and wallet-friendly) options from Tibetan dumplings to Brazilian pan de queso and Israeli couscous.



Look to Long Island City's comedy scene, where you'll find some of New York's best improv and stand-up. Wind down at MOMA PS1 - a spin around the galleries (or the outdoor dance party) is just the ticket.
