Housing prices have surged all across the city and one real estate website has compiled a list of the top 50 priciest neighborhoods in the first quarter of 2017.

PropertyShark used residential property sales closed between Jan. 1 and March 31 and the properties include single-family homes, condos and co-ops. Though Queens doesn’t make an appearance until the 28th slot, eight neighborhoods in the borough are on the list.

The Hunters Point section of Long Island City saw a 10 percent increase in median sale prices since the same time last year. The median sale price for single-family homes, condos and co-ops in Hunters Point is $973,956.

Broadway – Flushing is 32nd on the list with a 21 percent increase in median sale price since last year. In the first quarter of 2017, a home in this area will cost you about $940,000.

Queensboro Hill, also known as Pomonok, saw a 30 percent jump in median sale price since last year and a home there will cost you approximately $922,500.

Outlined by 45th Avenue, Pidgeon Meadow Road and 162nd Street, the area known as Kissena Park is 38th on the list but did see a 4 percent decrease in median sale price. Today, the median price for a home in that neighborhood is $853,000.

Right behind Kissena Park, the Ditmars – Steinway section of Astoria experienced a 13 percent spike since last year, with the median sale price hoovering around $832,500.

In Aburndale, a neighborhood within Bayside, the median sale price for a home is $802,500, which represents a 15 percent increase since last year.

Fresh Meadows and Belle Harbor, a neighborhood within the Rockaways, were 45th and 46th on the list, respectively.

In Fresh Meadows, a home will set you back $785,000, a 7 percent increase since last year. In Belle Harbor, a 3 percent increase translates to a median sale price of $770,000.
