In the northeast section of Queens near the Queens/Long Island border (along the path of the Long Island Railroad) lie several of the borough's more suburban—and more affluent—neighborhoods. Though still not far from the rest of the city, these communities tend to be made up of spacious single-family homes on manicured lawns with amenities like fitness centers and shopping nearby as well as highly-regarded school systems and an easy commute by bus or train to Midtown Manhattan and access to Long Island's suburban towns.
Douglaston is a community made up of several distinct neighborhoods on the North Shore of Long Island, bordered to the east by Little Neck and to the west by Bayside. One of the least urban neighborhoods in all of New York City, Douglaston has an upscale suburban feel like many of its neighbors near the Queens/Long Island border along the LIRR. Douglas Manor is a secluded section of Douglaston on a peninsula that juts out into Little Neck Bay. A variety of early-20th-century styles are represented among the Manor's 600 homes, including eight homes built by Josephine Wright Chapman, one of the most successful female architects of her time. Douglaston Hill is the neighborhood's oldest section, known for extra-large lots and turn-of-the-20th-century homes in Queen Anne and Victorian styles. Neighborhood pride is very much in evidence in Douglaston, and the sense of being part of a real community is something residents speak of often.
