Jackson Heights is a cultural melting pot with more than 167 languages spoken. It is a host to numerous parades, film festivals, diverse cuisine, as well as home to many inventors, artists, writers and filmmakers. For those who do not work in the area, it is a short 25-40 minute commute to Manhattan, making Jackson Heights a great place to call home if you are tired of the bustle. Jackson Heights was comprised by a grouping of exquisitely designed buildings adjacent to lush green space, known as garden apartments, most of which stand to this day.
One of the most culturally diverse areas.
Close knit, suburbanites meets Brooklyn hipsters.
Restaurants with specialties from around the world, plus Jahn’s Ice Cream Parlor for your sweet tooth!
