Glendale Neighborhood Guide
Considered a relatively secluded area of Queens, Glendale has a population of just over 10,000 people and is primarily a residential area with both middle-class and upper-middle-class homes. This neighborhood is isolated from the NYC subway system. It is bordered by historic cemeteries and has a slightly cooler microclimate than nearby neighborhoods such as Woodhaven and Forest Hills, which lends it a somewhat sleepy vibe. That said, this former farm area is now home to one of the largest shopping centers in Queens.
Architecture and landmarks
Glendale covers a narrow, long slice of land and is informally broken up into three different areas. The portion furthest east is known as Upper Glendale and has the more expensive homes in the area, most of which are detached single-family homes that are larger than average in size. There are also several semi-detached wood frame homes and a few brick townhomes, most of which were built post-1920s. The western portion of Glendale is referred to as Lower Glendale and is home to three different historic districts: 75th Avenue/61st Street Historic District, Cooper Avenue Row Historic District, and Central Avenue Historic District. These districts are each home to many buildings built with yellow Kreischer brick which were completed in the early 20th century. The space between Upper and Lower Glendale is primarily made up of homes built in the late 19th century/early 20th century and are multi-family, semi-detached wood frame homes, though there are also quite a few townhomes built with the unique yellow brick.
There is no NYC subway station in Glendale and the closest option is the M train stop at Fresh Pond Road. Halsey Street is similarly close by and offers access to the L train. There is a long list of bus routes, including a dozen local buses and seven express buses. Though a Long Island Rail Road station once operated here, it closed in 1998 after more than 130 years. Driving to Manhattan takes less than thirty minutes without taking traffic into consideration.
There are numerous schools in Glendale, including three public elementary schools, one public intermediate school, and four parochial elementary schools. Queens Metropolitan High School is housed in a building completed less than ten years ago, and Forest Hills High School has some of the highest SAT scores in Queens. There are also several private schools, including Saint John Evangelical Lutheran Elementary and Sacred Heart School.
Glendale does not have its own hospital; the closest hospital with an emergency room is a few miles away - the NYC Health + Hospitals branch in Elmhurst. Though several physicians have private practices in this neighborhood, many people travel to nearby neighborhoods for their medical care.
Glendale is part of the 110th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. In 2016 there were 9.7 crimes per 1,000 people. Overall, it is one of the safer neighborhoods when compared to others in Queens.
Things to do
The Glendale neighborhood is likely most well known as being the home of The Shops at Atlas Park, which officially opened in 2016. In total, this shopping center covers more than 300,000 square feet, including a movie theater, 75,000 square feet of offices, popular retailers like Coldwater Creek and Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and Spa.
While The Shops at Atlas Park are perhaps the most well-known retail outlets, there are also several meat markets, small bakeries, and restaurants along Myrtle Avenue, including the historic German eatery Zum Stammtisch, which translates to "Family Table" in German. The oldest operating business in the neighborhood is a two-story bar that's been running since the 1830s. Newer, popular spots include Room 55 and Edison Place.
Glendale once had many acres of parks, but today there are none left in this neighborhood. There are, however, a number of playgrounds including Dry Harbor Playground, open since 1934, and the Glendale Playground, open since 1942. Additionally, Mafera Park is a popular roller hockey rink in Glendale.
