Elmhurst's architectural beauty plays out in the diversity of housing,
which ranges from detached wood-frame houses to brick apartments.
Unlike the homogeneous housing of some nearby neighborhoods, Elmhurst
manages to maintain a residential feel while including a variety of
housing types. Along the main commercial drags of Roosevelt Ave and
Broadway, large apartment buildings loom above the bodegas and
eateries, whereas on the smaller side streets single and multi-family
houses are more common.

The quiet, family centered community is primarily Jewish, Italian,
and Chinese, which is evidenced in the commerce and places of worship.
Indeed, one advantage of living in Elmhurst is instantly apparent from
the heavenly aromas that waft from the slew of different restaurants
and take-out joints that represent the ethnic patchwork of the
neighborhood. Sidewalk food carts are also quite popular - Elmhurst has
the distinct honor of hosting the only Tibetan food cart in NYC. The
allure of Elmhurst is further enhanced by the many trains (7, E, R, V)
that provide excellent access to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and other parts
of Queens.

Most of the housing in Elmhurst is at least 40 years old, but new
condos are slowly making in-roads. The community is rising to the
challenge of new development and voicing concerns about uncontrolled
construction - even protesting the city's plans to bulldoze the
much-loved neighborhood library to make way for a new and improved
building. Because of community involvement, Elmhurst may be able to
retain its older feel. As it now stands, most of the real estate for
sale are co-ops in older buildings, and 1-2 family homes.
