WHERE: Little Neck is as far northeast as Queens goes until becoming Long Island. To the west is 245th Street and Douglaston, to the south is the Long Island Expressway and Alley Pond Park, at the north is Little Neck Bay; and to the east is Nassau County.
COMMUTE: Although there is no subway that runs through Little Neck and just a few bus lines, the area is home to the Long Island Rail Road's Port Washington line, which runs through Long Island and into New York City in no longer than 35 minutes. It is also in close proximity to the Long Island Expressway.
HOUSING: Little Neck is comprised mostly of one-family detached and semi-detached colonial and Tudor homes that start at $600,000 and go up over $1 million. Two-family homes begin at $900,000 and range up to $1.5 million.
NEIGHBORHOOD LIFE: Within walking distance, the area's main drag, Northern Boulevard, features a series of mom and pop shops, restaurants, supermarkets, deli's, and a library.
&#8220It combines the best part of urban living and the nicest aspect of suburban living,” said Walter Mugdan, president of the Westmoreland Association. &#8220It has the vitality of an urban area, with easy access to the city. It has the energy of an urban area, but has the private homes, beautiful tree-lined streets that are more associated with quiet neighborhood life. In some ways, you can say it has the best of both worlds.”
PARKS & RECREATION: Beyond the picturesque homes and close proximity of shops, Little Neck is also home to two beautiful parks: Udall's Cove and Alley Pond Park.
Maintained by the New York City Parks Department, Udall's Cove is a nature preserve that runs a mile long and serves as an inlet to Little Neck Bay, and is a marsh wetlands. The second largest park in Queens, Alley Pond Park offers a diverse ecosystem and supports abundant bird life. It has 26 acres of newly constructed playing fields and the Alley Pond Park Nature Trail.
COMMUNITY: For such a small neighborhood, Little Neck sure has a great deal of community organizations. They include Community Board 11, Douglaston-Little Neck Historical Society, Knights of Pythias, Little Neck-Douglaston Community Ambulance Corps, Inc., Little Neck/Douglaston Lions Club, Little Neck Pines Association, Westmoreland Association, and Udall's Cove Preservation Committee.
SCHOOLS: Located within School District 26, one of the best in the city, the neighborhood is home to P.S. 94 David D. Porter, P.S. 221 North Hills and P.S. 811 the Marathon School, an institution for the mentally; and M.S. 67 Louis Pasteur Middle School.
SAFETY: This is one of the chief reasons the area is so desirable to families. Little Neck is located in the 111th Precinct, known as one of the tops in the area, having seen crime decrease by over 17 percent in the last five years. The area also has their own volunteer organization, the Little Neck-Douglaston Community Ambulance Corps, Inc.
