Medium-sized neighborhood in Queens County, NY
. Borders on Ridgewood
to the west, Middle Village
to the north, Richmond Hills
to the east and a collection of smaller townships to the south. The population is mostly blue-collar
and the ethnic make-up runs the usual New York City
gamut, in this case weighted toward eastern European and Hispanic wih a touch of Indian thrown in. Nightlife is restricted to one coffee shop, a diner, three laundromats, a bunch of shabby german bars and more pizza places and chinese take-outs than one's mind can comfortably cope with.
Glendale is an interesting commmunity if only because it seems to have something about it that prevents people from going into Manhattan
- most people who live there drive to a workplace somewhere else in Queens. Most likely this factor is its paucity of public transportation - the Q55 bus
(barely) runs from Jamaica
, through Glendale and into Ridgewood where it meets up with the L Train
at Myrtle and Wycoff. That's pretty much it (the M Train
stops at Fresh pond Road but is primarily a commuter line and is inconvenient to use during off-peak hours).
