Living in the Lindenwood neighborhood of Queens

Lindenwood Apartments

Near the edge of Jamaica Bay, just behind Howard Beach is the Queens neighborhood of Lindenwood. This community has quite the mix of housing stock, from single-family homes to duplexes, and from rowhouses to garden apartments.

 

Typically, rents for NY apartments in this area are fairly affordable, given its inaccessibility to most public transit. In fact, most Lindenwood apartments are perfect for bargain hunters and highway commuters.

 

Living in Lindenwood

Although located within Queens' boundaries, Lindenwood sits just about on the border to Brooklyn, just north of the Belt Parkway. A good chunk of the neighborhood is designated to the large apartment complexes, housing several mid-rise towers or garden apartment developments. Despite its proximity to Jamaica Bay, Lindenwood is rather devoid of parkland. In fact, some of the only available parkland is the largely undisturbed Spring Creek Park, which sits as the bay's natural shoreline.

 

With a car, or a hop on the A Train, residents of Lindenwood apartments are only a few minutes from the beaches across the Bay. Neighborhoods and shoreline in the Rockaways makes for a perfect summer weekend, or a quick escape. Although the subway doesn't stop within the limits of Lindenwood, the express buses to Manhattan make the commute a lot more relaxing. In fact, the QM15 and BM5 express buses both travel to Midtown in as little as 45 minutes.

 

Although largely residential, Lindenwood is home to a small shopping center, providing residents with access to basic shops, banks, and local restaurants. But for most citizens, shopping is highly concentrated to the strip of Cross Bay Boulevard, just to the east in Howard Beach. Lindenwood apartments are rather smart choices if you're looking for affordability, and a bearable commute to Manhattan.
