About Jamaica Estates Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Jamaica Estates is an affluent suburban neighborhood located in the central-eastern portion of Queens. It has managed to stay under-the-radar. Many of the million dollar luxurious historic mansions have some of the most impressive architecture in the borough. They are detached family homes and boast a Tudor, Craftsman, Cape Cod or Mediterranean style. It is very lush as the Jamaica Estates Corporation preserved many of the trees upon its development in 1907. Unlike most homes in New York City, the homes have massive property sizes with some occupying as much as a third of an acre. Notable residents have included President Donald Trump and rapper Joseph ‘Run’ Simmons.
