Hollis Hills, NY – 11427, 11364
Neighborhood Description:


Hollis Hills is predominantly an upper-middle class neighborhood located in the northeastern section of Queens. Building began before World War II and continued through the 1950s. With roughly 1,200 homes and its only shopping centers and restaurants located in small clusters at 212th Street and Union Turnpike and on the corners of Union Turnpike and Springfield Boulevard, this neighborhood has remained largely unheard of, much to the delight of its residents.

One would think its quiet, tree-lined streets, oversized lots, and distinctly beautiful homes would be reason enough to live here. Surprisingly it's not the #1 attraction. School District is the primary reason that makes families choose Hollis Hills over surrounding neighborhoods. Famed PS 188 Elementary School being ranked as one of the top elementary schools in New York City has steadily driven real estate market prices for years. The diligent work of the Hollis Hills Civic association has preserved the tree lined neighborhood landscape, making Hollis Hills a top choice among home buyers.
