A number of Queens neighborhoods made the list of 50 priciest neighborhoods in New York City, according to a study conducted by real estate analyst PropertyShark.
Forest Hills Gardens is the highest Queens neighborhood on the list at No. 10, with a median sale price of $1,525,000 and 29 transactions in the past year. PropertyShark said the median price marked a 37 percent increase from the year before.
Broadway-Flushing and Hunters Point come in at No. 28 and No. 29, respectively. Broadway recorded a median home price of $944,000, with a 14 percent increase from the prior year, while Hunters Point’s median home price was $935,000 for a 16 percent increase. Malba, a subsection of Whitestone, was at No. 30 with a $932,000 median price, though the median price had dropped 6 percent from the prior year.
Other entries later in the list include Jamaica Estates at No. 42, which had the highest year-to-year percentage increase in median home prices, at 88 percent. The top four neighborhoods on the list were in Manhattan, with Tribeca maintaining its top spot. The Manhattan neighborhood had a median home price of $4,152,412 last year, according to PropertyShark’s analysis.
Besides Forest Hills, the only neighborhood not in Manhattan that made the top 10 was DUMBO in Brooklyn, with a $2.1 million median home price.
