Arverne Apartments for Rent
About Arverne Neighborhood
Along Beach Channel Drive in Queens, between Beach 56th Street and Beach 79th Street, you'll find the neighborhood of Averne. The area gets its name from "R.Vernam", an American lawyer and real-estate developer who’d purchased the land in 1882. By 1898 the community became a part of New York. At its start, Averne was a vibrant beachfront community with affordable summer homes, hotels, and a boardwalk complete with concessions and rides. The area was able to survive both a devastating hurricane and fire, but couldn’t make it through the rise of commercial air travel in the 50s and 60s. As tourists began to frequent Averne less often, many of the homes became vacant, with a significant number of houses and even resorts being leveled in the 60s. Renewal projects either fell apart or fell below expectations for decades. At the dawn of the new millennium, Averne began to inch its way toward revitalization thanks to initiatives by the city. New homes, businesses, and even nature preserves were developed. By mid-2019 the area began to experience gentrification.
