Kew Gardens Real Estate, Kew Gardens homes and apartments for sale, Kew Gardens Condos for sale.
Kew Gardens real estate apartments and condos for sale, Kew Gardens has the misfortune of being known for a famous murderthat happened in 1964 - clearly this reputation should have been lost
in the ensuing decades, but its inclusion in everything from musicals
to psychology texts books has kept the memory alive. But never fear,
crime rates in the neighborhood today are comparable to those of
upscale, safe neighborhoods in Manhattan.
Residents from all over Asia, South America, and the Middle East
inhabit Kew Gardens. The area has a significant Jewish community from
various countries of origin. Manhattan professionals are drawn to the
neighborhood because of the speedy E express train service into the
city. The F train and the Long Island Rail Road also stop in Kew
Gardens and the neighborhood is close to multiple freeways for car
owners. For residents on foot, there are many walking-distance
conveniences. Lefferts Blvd. and Metropolitan Avenue are frequently
crowded with pedestrians patronizing the array of cultural specialty
markets, take out joints, and general retail stores that reflect the
diversity of the neighborhood's residents. Russian cuisine coexists
with coffee and donuts.
Kew Gardens is slightly taller and more urban than its neighbors,
just also with charming tudor & detached houses. While mammoth
apartment buildings with castle spires can be found along the larger
avenues, the smaller tree lined side streets contain stately homes
decked out with ornate detailing and sizable yards. The housing density
of Kew Gardens means that most of the real estate for sale is in the
form of co-ops or condos.
