It’s a source of some mirth that there are more dead than living people in Queens. As anyone who’s driven here knows, there are miles and miles of graves. More than 3 million souls are buried in about two dozen cemeteries. Graves are woven into the landscape; you see them along the highways, across from schools, and next to a gas station. Whether it’s the constant reminder of mortality or some other factor, in general, Queens is a humble, not showy place, a middle- and working-class haven. It’s a place where people are just living modest lives.
By Long Island Railroad (LIRR) It can take just fifteen minutes from Pennsylvania Station to arrive in Queens. There are several different lines and more than a dozen Long Island Railroad stops in Queens. Most LIRR (not Amtrak) trains from Penn Station stop in Queens at LIRR stations in Woodside, Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, and Jamaica. There’s less frequent service to Flushing, Murray Hill (Flushing), Auburndale, Bayside, Douglaston, Little Neck, Bellerose, Hollis, Floral Park, and St. Albans. The LIRR runs directly to Jamaica, where you can change for the AirTrain to JFK Airport.

Queens boasts fast public transportation—less than 30 minutes from midtown Manhattan to neighborhoods such as Jackson Heights, Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside, and Woodside. Queens has a spectrum of housing options, too.
