Living in the Floral Park neighborhood of Queens

Floral Park Apartments

Floral Park is located on Queens' eastern edge, bordering the Nassau County villages of Stewart Manor, Floral Park Village, and New Hyde Park. This neighborhood borders Elmhurst to the south and east, and Bellerose largely to the west.


This community is a quiet section of Queens with single-family Cape Cod style houses. Most of the area was developed shortly after World War II to house returning soldiers, and has remained a strong, family-oriented neighborhood. Each individual house and front yard give the tree-lined streets a very suburban, relaxing character that few New York City neighborhoods an rival.


Life in Floral Park

Commuters living in Floral Park apartments have public transportation access via the Floral Park station stop on the Long Island Rail Road's Hempstead Branch. This train will take the daily commuter to directly to Atlantic Terminal, one of the city's largest transporation hubs, where they can connect to almost every NYC subway line as well as several other Long Island Rail Road lines. The train ride into Atlantic Terminal takes about forty minutes, while travelling into Penn Station ( with a transfer in Jamaica) takes just about the same time during peak hours.


Although the majority of Floral Park remains a highly suburban place, there are several well-kept apartment buildings around the Floral Park station of the Long Island Rail Road. If you're looking for a quiet Queens neighborhood to settle down, this particular community is not to be missed.
