Long Island and Queens Area & School Information
Long Island is a narrow island located just east of Manhattan. Nassau and Suffolk County are the two main counties of Long Island. To the east are Queens and Brooklyn, which are two boroughs (parts) of New York City. Long Island is generally a suburban area with large houses and lawns. Queens is one of the most popular areas for students and singles, thanks to its convenient access to Manhattan and plenty of affordably priced apartment options. Some popular areas in Queens include Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside, and Forest Hills.

 Nassau County
Port Washington
Port Washington is a town on the North Shore of Long Island, the last stop on the Long Island Railroad’s Port Washington Line; an express train takes approximately 35 minutes to Penn Station. There are many restaurants, hair salons, and grocery stores around the station here, and a shoreside park with tennis, swimming, and many other recreational opportunities. Homes, townhouses, condominiums, and duplexes are all available for both rentals and sale.
Located between Port Washington and Great Neck, Manhasset is an extremely wealthy neighborhood of upscale homes. The Long Island Railroad takes 30 minutes to reach Manhattan’s Penn Station. Upscale malls and shops cluster around Northern Boulevard, the main focus of the executives and celebrities living in this area.
Great Neck
This affluent neighborhood features a beautiful view of Connecticut, which is located across Long Island Sound. It takes less than 30 minutes to reach New York’s Penn Station by express train. Schools are among the very best in the region; prices are accordingly high.
Approximately 45 minutes from Penn Station on the Port Jefferson line, Syosset is another bedroom community on Long Island. Many residents, however, commute to work on Long Island rather than into the city.
Garden City
Garden City is an affluent neighborhood in the central part of Nassau County. The nearest stations are Garden City (on the Long Island Railroad’s Hempstead Line) and Mineola (on the LIRR’s Port Jefferson Line). Downtown is a convenient area in which to shop, replete with shopping malls and department stores. Adelphi University and Hofstra University are situated nearby.
Roslyn is partway to Port Washington and Manhasset, convenient by cars since the Long Island Express Highway is located nearby. There are many university and preparatory school campuses nearby, including the Old Westbury School, New York Institute of Technology, and Long Island University CW Post campus.
Jericho mostly consists of single-family homes for sale; there are not many rental properties here. The school district is very good.
 Suffolk County
Port Jefferson
This stylish port town is located close to SUNY-Stony Brook, Long Island’s top university.
East Hampton & Southampton
Located on the east end of Long Island, this is one of the most prestigious and affluent addresses in the nation. Homes are large, beaches are clean and beautiful (and reserved for local residents, mostly). Many wealthy Manhattan residents own summer homes here.
Forest Hills
Located near to LaGuardia Airport and JFK Airport, Forest Hills is a convenient place to live for people who commute to the airport or Manhattan. Many shops are located within walking distance. 25mins to Manhattan by subway.
Astoria is popular with students and singles for its affordability and convenient access to the city. There’s a strong Greek heritage here, and plenty of Greek restaurants. It’s only about 15 minutes to Manhattan by subway.
Rego Park
Rego Park is near Forest Hills, but closer to Manhattan. Huge shopping malls and stores can be found along Queens Boulevard. There are plenty of apartments here, affordably priced and well maintained.
Kew Gardens
Close to Forest Hills, Kew Gardens is popular for those who work at JFK International Airport. Both the LIRR and the subway are available. You can also reach the city in about 45 minutes. There are many single-family homes here. With its mansions and large parks, Kew Gardens is a good place to raise children.
15mins to Manhattan by using the subway (Line7). No transferring is necessary to reach Grand Central Terminal. Large condominiums called coops are available but not many rental apartments in this area. Walking distance to LaGuardia Community College and Queensboro Plaza.
Long Island City
Across the East River from the east side of Manhattan, LIC was once an industrial district, but recently high-rise doorman buildings have appeared; this is one of the hottest neighborhoods now for commuters to the Big Apple. Family amenities such as great restaurants, parks, and playgrounds have not yet developed. But for those seeking a quick subway ride into the city, it’s worth a look.
This neighborhood is just 17 minutes from Midtown Manhattan by subway.
A busy neighborhood with many Asian resident and restaurants, Flushing also has plenty of parks, Citi Field (home of the New York Mets), and Arthur Ashe Stadium, site of the annual U.S. Open tennis tournament.
A town that contains the major retail store Queens Mall. Very convenient.
Jackson Heights
A very diverse neighborhood in Queens, Jackson Heights is on the right. Housing consists mainly of single-family homes, co-op buildings, and rentals, with a smaller number of condominiums. The express subway train to Manhattan makes a stop here.
