Glen Oaks

By The Times/Ledger

South of Little Neck is Glen Oaks. The highest point in Queens is to be found in Glen Oaks, that is, if you can find it. It was the site of the Glen Oaks Golf Club. Glen Oaks is a residential neighborhood and also home to the Creedmore Psychiatric Center.

In a small niche of Queens, right alongside the city border is the neighborhood of Floral Park. On land that was long used for farming we still have the forty-seven acre Queens County Farm Museum, 73-50 Little Neck Parkway, 347-FARM. Complete with the historic Adriance Farmhouse (first built as a three-room Dutch farmhouse in 1772), a new red barn, acres of forest, a greenhouse, land set aside for farming, and farm animals all over the place, Queens County Farm Museum gives a wonderful taste of the city's past and life as it is still played out “in the interior,” I believe is the way us New Yorkers might say it.
