Little Neck, NY

Overview

Although technically part of New York City, Little Neck embodies a suburban atmosphere that is noticeable even when compared to the rest of Queens. Many of the neighborhoods resemble subdivisions you might find in Middle America, and the shops and restaurants lining Northern Boulevard have a downright small-town feel. The Long Island Rail Road serves two stations in Little Neck, both near the water. Several higher learning institutions are nearby, including the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, QCC, Queens College, and the Queens campus of St. John’s University. The huge Alley Park forms Little Neck’s western border, and several other parks and golf courses throughout the community provide ample opportunities to get outside and play. The local schools are part of the highest-performing district in the New York City Department of Education.
