About Richmond Hill Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Richmond Hill is a commercial and residential neighborhood located in the southwestern section of the borough of Queens. Once described as bucolic for its location far from the bustle of Manhattan, Richmond Hill retains a friendly low-key atmosphere, with summer block parties, and Christmas caroling. The neighborhood hosts many family-friendly restaurants and proximity to the extensive Flushing Meadows Park and Queens Museum. It's home to a large Guyanese and Caribbean population, which is reflected in the many Roti bakeries, vegetable markets, and sari shops. With many Brooklyn transplants now arriving in search of cheaper rentals, the neighborhood feels like a harmonious mix of old and new.
