To Queens, which is very large, it is 7 minutes to the Queens border. To Brooklyn, depending on traffic and where you want to go in Brooklyn, it can be anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. To Manhattan by car the drive is about 50 minutes to an hour and by train it is 50 minutes. Of course this all depends on when you travel since traffic is a major issue. Some days and some hours the trip is much shorter than others. Woodmere is 15 minutes fro JFK Airport and it is a wonderful town to live in.
