7. Douglaston

                 The architecture of shops on Douglaston Parkway and Northern Boulevard is a trademark of the area.

On the outskirts of western Queens, right on the border of Nassau County sits Douglaston, a quaint little neighborhood with a very unique old town setup. Many of the houses in this area are large and were built in varying styles over the course of the neighborhood’s history. Some of the more notable areas include Alley Pond Park and Little Neck Bay, both of which are beautiful to explore and relax at.

In terms of recreation, the neighborhood features Douglaston Golf Course and The Douglaston Plaza Shopping Center. With the very nostalgic feeling of an old town vibe, Douglaston is a fantastic place to unwind and get a way from it all.
