Around Throgs Neck
Throgs Neck is a largely residential neighborhood with wooden docks jutting out from the shoreline and parks along the water. The neighborhood is mostly made up of single-family brick houses, but along the water are maritime-inspired homes with decks overlooking the sound. Most of the homes are located east of the Whitestone Bridge where the crisscrossing roads create quiet neighborhood blocks. However, along main avenues and boulevards are apartments that sit above shops and restaurants.
There is no shortage of restaurants (especially seafood) to explore in Throgs Neck. Within the neighborhood, residents can find cuisines from around the world along East Tremont Avenue. The best seafood can be found close to the shore, where there are restaurants located on small peninsulas that extend into the Long Island Sound. If you are looking to have drinks or a meal with a view, the waterfront restaurants are always popular options.
Walking along the inner neighborhood of Throgs Neck, you will see brick houses with small, well-tended yards and gardens. Residents walk along the sidewalks, most likely heading towards the water or one of the several parks. In Ferry Point Park, you will see people strolling along the East River or having a picnic with family and friends. You can feel the cool breeze coming off the water as you watch the fishermen casting their lines and boats sailing by.
On a Friday night, residents of Throgs Neck enjoy a relaxed atmosphere. The neighborhood is home to a few restaurants and nightlife options located along Tremont Avenue. They can enjoy one of the many seafood eateries or grab a drink at a local bar before walking along the water to watch the sunset over the Manhattan skyline.
Wake up and take a morning stroll along the waterfront with a cup of coffee. Then head to your favorite spot for a breakfast sandwich before going to Ferry Point Park. Grab an early evening seafood dinner and watch the waves splash against the dock. Then head over to the west side of the neighborhood to watch the sky turn pinkish-orange as boats slowly pass by.
There are no trains or subways that stop in Throgs Neck, so unless you are using one of the few bus lines that leave the neighborhood, a car is a must. The Q50 and Q44 both stop in Throgs Neck and cross the Whitestone Bridge into Queens. From here you can get to Laguardia or JFK airports. Residents also have access to the Bx8, Bx9, Bx40, and Bx42 bus lines, which travel within the Bronx. Your public transit options are limited if you need to reach Manhattan or any other borough besides the Bronx or Queens. The Bx40 takes you to the 6 line of the New York City subway system, which is the easiest way to get into Manhattan other than by car.
