Bayswater, Queens

By Nabewise


Proudly bearing a fashionable London name, Bayswater in Queens is a residential waterfront neighborhood that was originally the site of yacht clubs and fox hunts. Bordering Far Rockaway in Queens but seen by many as a sub-neighborhood of Long Island, Bayswater is now a diverse, community-oriented nabe with a rich history, Mott Avenue mansions, and abundant wildlife.

Great Party Neighborhood

I always love partying here.

Lonely and quiet, IMO

Not anything going on for anyone under 30. One lone bus drives up and down Mott Avenue and there is no subway so a car is a must. While most of the neighborhood was under development, now that the economy is the way it is, no one is really buying up the new houses. There are a few houses and mansions that are historically significant to Far Rockaway (if you like that sorta stuff), but its mostly a small family type of place out here.

Why would they close the park?

When I heard the Bayswater State Park would be closed, I was annoyed. It is a beautiful area of land and people watch the JFK planes come in and go fishing. Hopefully, they will leave it open and just stop maintaining it -that would be a reasonable compromise.
