KEW GARDENS HILLS, QUEENS — Looking ahead to 2022, Kew Gardens Hills is predicted to be the hottest neighborhood in Queens, and among the city’s top 10 most popular areas to live, a new study shows.
In order to find the city’s up-and-coming neighborhoods for 2022, StreetEasy, the real estate website, looked for areas in the city that saw increased sale prices, rents, and user searches this year.
Half of the hottest neighborhoods on the site’s top 10 list are bustling areas in Brooklyn, and three of Manhattan’s most expensive, downtown neighborhoods made the cut, too, but Kew Gardens Hills stood out for its affordability and green space, according to StreetEasy.
The central Queens neighborhood saw rent prices inch up 4 percent last year, but rents typically stayed below $2,000 — making the neighborhood the second-cheapest on the list, alongside Fordham in the Bronx.
Kew Gardens Hills, however, saw home sale prices rise by 11 percent; an increase likely bolstered by some New Yorkers’ interest in buying single-family homes in the outer boroughs amid the pandemic.
Still, going into 2022, the typical home in the neighborhood costs a somewhat-affordable price tag of $439,000 — the lowest on the list next to Fordham.
Kew Gardens Hills also stands out on the list for its green space, nearby parks, and proximity to Queens College, StreetEasy says.
