Indian Hill is an ethnically diverse community with apartment complexes and multi-story buildings. Murray Hill is primarily residential with several landmarks such as the Kingsland Homestead, entertainment venues, and the Voelker Orth Museum. Queensboro Hill is also referred to as South Flushing and Waldheim is an estate division with unique historical homes and an unusual street pattern layout.

The Whitestone Expressway and Van Wyck Expressway bring heavy traffic along the borders and the entire region is heavily populated with lots of activity and busy streets and sidewalks. Many landmark churches, museums, a tennis stadium, a town hall, gardens, and a bird sanctuary provide diverse structures in the area.
