Utopia, Queens

Utopia, Queens


Utopia is a neighborhood where wide, quiet streets and detached homes foster a suburban style community. Often considered part of Auburndale, Utopia's main commercial drag along Union Turnpike is a veritable homage to small business where blocks and blocks of locally owned shops run its length. St. John's University is near Utopia as are Jamaica Estates, Hillcrest and Fresh Meadows. Buses are the main public transportation option here. Those with cars enjoy easy highway access to Manhattan.

Top Reviews from Travel Rentals Neighborhoods

Awkward name to live up to, but residents seem to like its charm, good schools, mass transit convenience and broad, quiet streets. Of course housing prices have doubled and many more families with different backgrounds are moving in; more Asians and Russians, specifically. Sprawling Cunningham Park is the main outdoor recreational hub for Utopia residents, and St. John’s Queens Campus offers art galleries, concert halls, theaters and lectures for the public to enjoy.Nina
