Tucked in the western corner of Queens, Maspeth is a suburban neighborhood revered for its peaceful atmosphere and wealth of housing options.
Located between a string of bustling Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods, Maspeth manages to exude a quiet, isolated feel. Three cemeteries sit near its borders. The community is tight-knit, with families that have been living in the area for years and neighbors who know one another. Housing in the area is a mix of single-family homes, multi-family homes, and apartments. People are drawn to the area for its laid-back feel and beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline.
While mostly residential, the community has a string of favorite local hotspots. Small pockets of dining and entertainment venues break up the residential blocks. Local bars and markets stand alongside strip malls and restaurants. The Metropolitan Oval, a soccer turf dating back to the 1920s, is a favorite place to spend weekend afternoons. Highland Park is nearby, giving locals access to walking trails, sports courts, and sites to barbecue.
