Jackson Heights

Jackson Heights offers something that most Queens neighborhoods don’t: appealing older housing stock. Many of the apartments and co-ops in its extensive historic district feature private gardens. Transit, however, is a challenge: Although Jackson Heights is blanketed with subway stations, commutes to midtown can be sluggish, averaging about 25 minutes.
