Little Neck, Queens is one of NYC's hidden gems. It has the feel of suburban living while still staying true to important tenets of city life: accessible public transportation, along with great culture and dining. It's just 30 minutes from Manhattan via the Long Island Railroad, and there are a number of interesting things to do and see here. Bordered by Little Neck Bay, Nassau County and the Long Island Expressway, Little Neck is one of the most scenic neighborhoods in Queens.
Attractions like Udalls Cove Park Preserve featuring 31 acres of nature, wildlife and great walking paths, and fabulous restaurants such as Little Dumpling, with its delicious steamed buns and noodles, make this neighborhood a worthwhile trip.
As you stroll through the area, you'll see that it's well-loved and well-preserved by its residents. Little Neck is clean and quiet, and the hilly streets make for an invigorating walk. Also, if you love looking at beautiful homes, this sweet neighborhood certainly delivers. I recommend walking through the residential part of town or one of the large parks, and then heading over to Northern Boulevard for a bite to eat.
