Queens Overview

The eastern tier borough of New York City, Queens represents some of the Big Apple's finest living. Offering easy access not only to Brooklyn but also much of Long Island, apartments in Queens are an ideal place to get a true feel for one of the world's most amazing big city destinations.
History

Queens History

Like much of New York City, Queens is steeped in history, becoming an official borough in 1897. With the establishment of the Long Island Railroad in 1908 and the completion of the Queensboro Bridge one year later, Queens experienced a flood of growth and new residents, with the city previously only available via the ferry or smaller, distant bridges. The population of Queens roughly doubled in the 1920's, thanks in part to the expansion of the legendary NYC subway system as well as the construction of the Steinway Tunnel. Queens acted as home to the New York World's Fair a number of times through the 1960's, and industrial plants continue to act as a draw for business to this day.
Weather

Queens Weather

Just a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean, Queens experiences a subtropic climate that yields plenty of rainfall and occasionally humid summers. Heavy snow is uncommon but not unheard of, especially compared to the rest of New York State, while the mild and brisk spring and fall tend to be the most comfortable and thus popular seasons.
