Living in Douglaston

Douglaston's waterfront is a big attraction for residents, and the village's affluence shows through its local yacht club and focus on sailing. Several greenspaces exist in the area, namely the 635 acre Alley Pond Park which has a creek that flows into Little Neck along the west side of Douglaston.

 

Due to Douglaston's easterly location, it is very isolated from MTA's subway system, however, there are other options for the Douglaston commuter. The Long Island Railroad's Port Washington Line travels through the southern section of this neighborhood, stopping at the Douglaston Station. With the train station's southern position within the neighborhood, it is not within walking distance from most of its citizens. The QM3 express bus can take residents of Douglaston apartments to Manhattan, and three Queens local buses can transport passengers along Northern Boulevard to the Flushing neighborhood, and the number 7 train.

 

The lack of bus lines and train lines through the majority of the neighborhood continues to maintain the beauty, exclusiveness, and quiet atmosphere of this affluent Queens neighborhood.
