A nabe composed of single-family homes and postwar garden apartment buildings, Kew Gardens Hill (not to be confused Kew Gardens to the south) is a one-square mile nabe in Queens. Apartments here generally possess nicely groomed lawns and internal pathways that give the complexes a small-neighborhood feel.

About Kew Garden Hills
Most people I speak to when I mention I live in Kew Garden Hills think I am speaking off Kew Gardens. When I tell them, I am not, they usually have no clue where I live. And I kind of like that!
Kew Garden Hills, what’s missing for it’s night life, dining and shopping makes up for it’s serenity, green trees galore, gardens and closeness to Forest Hills. You could always take the Q64 and stay there or hop on the E/F express to the cityWhat's awesome
You’ll feel like you’re not living in NYC because of the amount of grass and trees we have…even after the hurricane!What's not so awesome
Sometimes it is too quiet!
Quiet, Peaceful part of NYC
Depending on how close to Queens College & coops you are will directly impact whether there’s ample parking or a shortage. Moderately priced shopping, very affordable & low tax homes (many are attached). Great for families, but many young singles share homes and apartments for schooling as that St. John’s is nearby as well. Although we’re part of Flushing, it’s a completely different neighborhood & cultural feel than downtown Flushing.
KGH is a mix of cultures, majority Orthodox Jews (a lot of Synagogues & Seminary buildings) near Main St./Jewel Ave., Muslims tend to live near Kissena Blvd.-Parsons Blvd. area, and other races/religions are the minority and spread out. Most restaurants are kosher or hallal if that helps give a feeling.
This place is awesome to live in, it has a little something for everyone, restaurants, quietness, hiking a short distance away, big open spaces to take your pets, playgrounds for families. bars nearbyWhat's awesome
Everything!What's not so awesome
