Ridgewood Kids Neighborhood Guide

This quiet Queens residential neighborhood is famous for its lovely landmarked rows of early 20th-century brick and stone townhouses, and suburban in the city feel. Originally settled by Germans and Italians, Ridgewood is much more diverse today and really appeals to families thanks to its relatively affordable housing, multiple parks and playgrounds, and proximity to Manhattan and especially Brooklyn—-hipster hot spots Williamsburg and Bushwick comprise its eastern borders. Our Family Guide to Ridgewood includes posts on the best places to eat, play and experience with kids, including popular indoor play space Kids Fun House and the historic Vander Ende-Onderdonk House, the oldest stone house in all of New York City.
