Queens is the most sought-after urban location for renters to live in across the country, according to a new report.

The real estate firm RentCafe released its October rental activity report that found that the borough attracted the most engagement from apartment hunters in the month than anywhere else in the nation.

Queens, which ranked third place in September, climbed ahead of Arlington, VA, and Kansas City, MO, to move to the top spot in October. This climb to the top was months in the making, as the borough has been making its way up in RentCafe’s top 30 since the May 2023 report. Continue Reading ›

Cherry Blossoms Have Officially Started Blooming In NYC !! Check Out The Top 16 Places To See Them !

The first pink blooms of the season have begun, signaling winter’s end! Currently you can find the beautiful blooms at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

 

And even earlier than we thought! Spotted this morning, the beautiful blooms can most certainly be seen in NYC as of March 8 in Queens—even earlier than last year’s first sighting in NYC on March 19th.

According to Central Park, “Okame cherry trees are the first cherry trees to blossom in spring, earlier than the more famous Yoshino and Kwanzan cherry trees.”

Though last year, the first cherry blossoms were observed at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park, this year, these trees can currently be seen in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

We can only hope the trees in Central Park will bloom next!

The main cherry blossom blooms of Central Park are the Okame, Yoshino, and Kwanzan trees. As noted, the Okame are usually the first to bloom. Yet, perhaps the most striking are the Yoshino trees, which are located along the east side of the Reservoir and also on Cherry Hill. These 35 tress were gifted from Japan in 1912 and bloom in very light pink, almost white.

The trees usually bloom for about a week, and then drop their petals which leaves a beautiful natural confetti that is just as picturesque. That said, the season is short, so be sure to catch them while you can!

If you want to keep an eye out for some other spots, early trees also tend to bloom along the East River walkway on Roosevelt Island.

So even though the temperatures don’t feel like it’s spring, the blooming cherry blossoms are an exciting sign that the change of seasons is quickly approaching. You can even look forward to longer and lighter days as NYC’s first 7pm sunset of the year will be next week!

THE NOT SO FORGOTTEN TEA GARDEN IN FOREST HILLS GARDENS , NYC

QUEENS HOMES FOR SALE

At the back of the historic Forest Hills Inn at 1 Station Square lies a long-lost architectural gem, the Forest Hills Tea Garden. Opened in 1912 behind an ornate gate, the Tea Garden hosted everything from weddings to dinner dances. Though the remains of the tea garden remain today, most residents probably are unaware of its history. According to Michael Perlman, an author and historian who has been raising money and awareness to preserve the Tea Garden, the structure is just a shell of its former self, though it has the potential for restoration and revitalization. Perlman, a fifth-generation Forest Hills resident, spoke with Untapped New York about the history of this mostly forgotten but rich historic site.

DID YOU KNOW??! Kew Gardens Hills Was Just Named One Of NYC’s Hottest Neighborhoods

Queens homes for sale

Just Listed With Terrace Sotheby’s International Realty, 48 Beverly Road, Offered For $2,299,000

 

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.
