Marking a part of the northern peak of Queens is East Elmhurst, a neighborhood which houses the familiar LaGuardia airport and the homes and businesses that surround it. East Elmhurst is a mostly suburban area, with half of the space taken up by residential areas and the other half by the airport. The neighborhood is also known for a few notable residents in the past, including Malcom X and Louis Armstrong. With LaGuardia acting as the go-to place for travel outside of the state, the traffic near Grand Central Parkway and the surrounding streets is generally bustling, though the streets on the southern side are likely to be quieter. If you’re searching for somewhere in New York with the appeal of a big city and the calmer feeling of suburbia, East Elmhurst is an ideal place to explore, so long as you’re not bothered by the sounds of planes overhead.

East Elmhurst is almost entirely flat terrain, as is much of New York City in general. The streets are laid out in a grid with a few larger main roads intersecting, though navigation shouldn’t be too large an issue if you keep an eye on the street signs. Like anywhere in a large city, you should take caution when crossing streets or in heavier traffic areas, but the neighborhood, in general, is one of the more easy-going places to go for a stroll, so it shouldn’t present much of an obstacle. If you’re looking for a much more challenging walk, however, you may want to venture outside of East Elmhurst to find it. Keep in mind too that security both in and around LaGuardia is likely heavy and it’s best to keep your walk to the residential streets nearby rather than risk wandering into a high-security area by accident.

While the area doesn’t offer many larger green areas for nature enthusiasts to explore, there are a few smaller parks and playgrounds that provide just enough space to run, jump, and play. Within the boundaries of East Elmhurst, the largest park is likely to be Overlook Park which allows visitors to see some of the airport takeoffs and landings as they walk. Some smaller fields such as Bulova Park, Gorman Playground, and East Elmhurst Playground may act as ideal places for a quick stop and a break before continuing back into your normal walking routine. Ultimately, East Elmhurst is perfect for those with a love for suburbia while being close enough to the busier boroughs to take advantage of their offerings. Those looking for greener pastures are encouraged to explore beyond the boundaries of the neighborhood to satisfy their tastes.
