In the center of Queens, you’ll come upon one of the most tree-filled neighborhoods in New York City, a unique quality for an urban area. Originally created to be a luxurious, suburban escape from Manhattan, Jamaica Estates houses historic mansions, including Donald Trump’s childhood home, and exudes a park-like atmosphere.
This historic neighborhood boasts a family-friendly environment with a variety of apartments and houses for rent. Nearby subway and bus stations make traveling in and out of Jamaica Estates a breeze, along with easy access to major roads like Grand Central Parkway and Hillside Avenue. Travel along Hillside Avenue on the south end of town for banks, restaurants, supermarkets, and more conveniences.
Jamaica Estates borders the expansive Cunningham Park on its east and Saint John’s University Queens Campus on its west.
