Jamaica

Not to be confused with the tropical island, Jamaica is a popular residential neighborhood located in the southern portion of this borough. One of the great things about this neighborhood is that it is not only home to farmer’s markets, mom and pop shops and local restaurants, but it is just 15 minutes from midtown. This makes Jamaica an increasingly popular place for those working in midtown to reside in—giving them a neighborhood feeling that is still within reach of the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
