Briarwood, Queens

By Nabewise


Often mistaken for Jamaica, Queens, Briarwood is one of the borough's most well-kept secrets. Tree-lined streets typify its residential streets while Queens and Parsons Boulevards are replete with shopping and dining options. Centrally located, Briarwood is a very commuter friendly neighborhood with access to the subway, LIRR and the Central Grand Highway.

Secretly Lovely

Quite diverse here, like many of the nearby neighborhoods, leafy and quiet. Briarwood still maintains a pretty low profile, so it manages to be inexpensive and a culturally rich place for low-income or middle-class families to raise kids. Small mom and pop businesses line the streets, snug between detached homes and mid-sized apartment complexes.
