Glen Oaks Real Estate

Picture of Glen Oaks

At the easternmost edge of New York City, Eastern Queens is the kind of subway-free suburban haven of leafy streets and parks more often associated with neighboring Nassau County, Long Island. The Queens/Nassau border is referred to locally as "the city line." What is now Nassau County was previously part of Queens County—a handful of border neighborhoods even have Nassau County counterparts with the same names. Except for street names, the transition between Nassau and Queens counties is seamless. One big difference: Taxes are about half as much in Queens. In addition to the area's parks and playgrounds, highlights are the Queens County Farm Museum in Floral Park, which re-creates the county's historic agricultural phase, complete with farm animals and antique farming equipment—and whose records of farm ownership date back to 1697—and Preller Field, a nine-field Little League complex.

Glen Oaks is another neighborhood in the far eastern portion of the New York City borough of Queens. The hills at its northern border, part of a glacial terminal moraine, include the highest point in Queens. The largest residential area in Glen Oaks is covered by the garden apartments of Glen Oaks Village, a self-managed cooperative housing development. Built in 1947, Glen Oaks Village went co-op in 1981. Covering 110 acres and offering eight different apartment styles along curving, tree-lined streets, the residential complex on the Queens/Nassau County border has its own security detail, supermarket, bank, movie house and coffee shop as well as a health club, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pool and private 18-hole golf course. Glen Oaks is also home to Parkwood Estates and North Shore Towers apartment complex and country club as well as the nearby Royal Ranch community. Like many of its eastern Queens/Nassau border neighbors, the district's schools have consistently ranked among the city's best.

The Long Island Rail Road has a Floral Park stop in Nassau County. Direct trains arrive at Pennsylvania Station in about 37 minutes. Of the eastern Queens border neighborhoods, Floral Park is closest to the Cross Island Parkway, and the Grand Central Parkway, Long Island Expressway and Southern State Parkway are nearby.
