Around Auburndale

Almost all of Auburndale is made up of apartments and single-family houses. Many even include outdoor space, such as a small lawn and driveway. This is a rare commodity in New York City, which means that the properties in the neighborhood can be highly sought after. These features also give Auburndale a suburban feel, even though the neighborhood is only a train or bus ride away from Manhattan. Residents who prefer public transportation may find themselves living farther north in the neighborhood where the Auburndale Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) stop is located. The LIRR goes into Penn Station at the heart of Manhattan. Residents who want to be closer to a large greenspace find themselves in the southern part of the neighborhood near Kissena Corridor Park.

A variety of local restaurants can be found along the main thoroughfares such as Northern Boulevard, which runs east to west, and Francis Lewis Boulevard that runs north to south. Here you’ll find restaurants serving authentic Latin American, Asian, and Italian cuisine. The mostly suburban nature of Auburndale also means you can find several grocery stores throughout the neighborhood. This allows residents to have cookouts at their homes or nearby parks when the weather is nice.

Walking along the tree-lined streets of the neighborhood you’ll see residents tending to their lawns and gardens. Along some of the busier streets, you’ll see local shops and restaurants with visitors scattered throughout the sidewalks. On sunny days, you’ll see families gathering at the park or strolling along the sidewalks. In most sections of Auburndale, the streets are typically quiet, and on weekends you might find kids playing a pickup game of soccer or basketball.

A Friday night in Auburndale is quiet and relaxing with the neighborhood offering a reprieve from the loud and fast-paced city vibe. Residents can spend their evening dining at one of their favorite restaurants with family or socializing with friends at a cafe. Although nightlife options are limited in Auburndale, it doesn’t mean you can’t find Friday night fun in the area. If you’re looking for cocktails and entertainment, there are several bars and pubs to choose from in nearby Bayside and Murray Hill neighborhoods offering late-night fun like billiards tables and darts.

For the perfect Sunday, you might find yourself waking up early, brewing a fresh cup of coffee, and walking around the neighborhood. Head over to Northern Boulevard for a New York-style diner breakfast. After a full meal, walk to Kissena Park to hang out and play games with family and friends. Or if you need time to relax, bring a blanket and lay on one of the grassy lawns.

There are no MTA subway stops in Auburndale, so many residents own a car. There is easy access to the I-295 and I-495 highways, which can bring residents into Manhattan or out of the city. One mode of public transportation in the neighborhood is the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). The Auburndale stop is located along the Port Washington Line, which runs through the middle of the neighborhood. The LIRR can take residents into Penn Station or out onto Long Island. Residents also have access to the Q28, Q76, and Q31 bus lines, which travel around Queens and to subway stations located in other neighborhoods. The lack of access to the subway system, and limited busses, means that traveling by car is often the easiest way to get around Auburndale.
