Bayside, in northeastern Queens, is a suburban neighborhood with city amenities and city taxes (often $6,000 a year less than neighboring Nassau County). Walk down Bell Boulevard, Bayside's crowded main thoroughfare, and it's hard to believe that just one block away are wide, green streets and one-family homes. Bayside is a true Queens find, with its superior public schools, quick commute to Manhattan (30 minutes by LIRR), proximity to the Throgs Neck Bridge and highways, and many shops and restaurants. More and more Chinese, Greek, and Korean families are finding a home here, joining a thriving Italian community.
Bayside's Boundaries & Neighborhoods:
Bayside is bordered to the north and the east by the Long Island Sound and Little Neck Bay (but is separated from the bay by the Cross Island Parkway). Across the Bay, to the east, is upscale Douglas Manor, with its large waterfront homes. The eastern land border is the Cross Island Parkway and Douglaston; the western is Francis Lewis Boulevard/Utopia Parkway and Auburndale; the southern is Union Turnpike and Queens Village. Bayside is a very large neighborhood that includes the communities of Bayside Gables (privately owned gated community), Bayside Hills (development-style housing), Bay Terrace (larger apartment buildings), Bellcourt (mixed architecture in area from Bell to Clearview, 35th to 39th Aves; near LIRR), Lawrence Manor (40th Ave to 221 St, east of Bell), Oakland Gardens (home to Queensborough Community College), Tall Oaks, and Weeks Woodlands (26th to 35th Aves, east of Bell).

Bayside Transportation:
Bayside is a 25-minute commute to Penn Station by LIRR (Port Washington line, Bell Blvd at 41st St). There is no subway (but some commuters take the bus to the #7 at Flushing Main Street). Two express buses run to Midtown Manhattan in about 50 minutes: the QM2 (Bell Blvd and 23rd Ave) and the QM2A (Corporal Kennedy Blvd and 23rd Ave). There is also the Q31 (to Jamaica Center), and the Q12/Q13 (to Downtown Flushing, Main Street). For car-loving Baysiders, there's ready access to the Whitestone/VanWyck Expy, Grand Central, LIE, Clearview Expy, and Cross Island Pkwy. It's very convenient to the Throgs Neck Bridge, only a few more minutes to the Whitestone Bridge. JFK and LaGuardia are less than 15 miles away.
Bayside History and Landmarks:
Originally inhabited by the Matinecock Indians, Bayside was settled by the English in the late 17th century, soon after Flushing was established. William Lawrence, the owner of a fleet of clipper ships used for the China trade, established the first settlement, naming it Bayside for its location on Little Neck Bay. Fort Totten, built during the Civil War to protect New York Harbor, is now a public park. The Bayside Historical Society has its exhibits on its grounds.
Bayside Main Streets and Shopping:
Bell Boulevard, Northern Boulevard, and Francis Lewis Boulevard are the big commercial streets. For shopping, Bell Boulevard is your best bet, offering everything from mom-and-pop shops, to the major chains at the Bay Terrace mall. The shopping district along Bell has the feel of a small village since many shops have been run by the same families for decades.
Parks and Recreation:
Bayside has hundreds of acres of parks, with ball fields, golf courses, picnic areas, and hiking paths:

  • Little Neck Bay Running Path and Park (footbridge access near 28th Ave brings you to the Bayside marina)
  • Fort Totten (Cross Island Pkwy to Totten Rd to 15th Rd)
