Our Top Jackson Heights Moving Tips

This neighborhood begins with LaGuardia Airport to the north and spans south all the way to Roosevelt Avenue. From east to west, it stretches from Junction Boulevard to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Nearby neighborhoods include Elmhurst, Woodside, North Corona, Astoria, and Ditmars-Steinway.

Beyond its bounds, there’s quite a bit to get acquainted with in your new home. So, here’s a few details to get you started:

  • Cost of living. Relatively speaking, city livin’ is much more affordable in these parts than in some other neighborhoods and boroughs. You won’t have to sacrifice space or style for price though. Among the available abodes you’ll find pre-war Tudor, Italiante, and Georgian Revival buildings, row houses, co-ops, and one- to two- family homes. If you’d like to make one your own, you’ll be looking at a median listing price of $399.5k as a reference point in your search. Renters will be looking at a monthly cost of around or a little over $2k per month for a one-bedroom apartment (lower than many spots in Manhattan). When you’re not at home base, you’ll find that the affordable costs will follow with economical public transit options. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) offers bus (such as the Q29, Q33, Q32, Q49, Q70) and subway options (7 train) in the area, all with a $2.75 price tag per one-way ride. If you’re a frequent rider, you may even consider getting an unlimited MetroCard that’ll cost you $33 per week or $127 for a month.
  • Neighborhood history. Designated a historic district in 1993, Jackson Heights is one of the nation’s first and biggest planned co-op and garden apartment communities. Between 1914 and 1939, construction of apartment buildings surrounding private parks and block-long co-ops that included access to greenspace for multi-family dwellings took place. The idea of this garden community was pursued in contrast to the grittier urban living environments at the time. That’s not where the history ends though. Within one of these garden apartments, the well-known game of Scrabble was born. Though there’s some contention around when the game was initially conceived, Alfred Mosher Butts created the game in his home somewhere between 1931 and 1933. In 2011, a street sign was erected to commemorate the birthplace of the board game at 35th Avenue and 81st Street.
  • Global plates. Being a cultural melting pot, Jackson Heights bubbles over on cuisines from all over the world, particularly with South American and Asian flavors. Where to begin? Perhaps a stop at the local Jackson Diner is order – but it’s not your typical greasy spoon fare. This neighborhood favorite serves up fresh Indian dishes from samosa chaat to tandoori chicken. Or maybe you’ve got a taste for Pakistani? Taste of Lahore on Northern Boulevard will have you sampling Ashari chicken and gajraila (a carrot pudding). End the meal with a trip to Cannelle Patisserie for classic French pastries or La Gran Urguaya Bakery for a South American treat. You might also plan for a lunch date in the near future at El Toum for the Lebanese take on salmon shish kabob, falafel, and baklava. Another can’t miss special dish is the fresh (and affordable) corn arepas from the local food celebrity, the Arepa Lady. And these are just a handful of the spots you’ll come across in this part of the city.
  • Nightlife. Though the area isn’t particularly known for late night highlights, music and dancing in the evening hours can be found in Jackson Heights. To add to the historic nature of the neighborhood, Friend’s Tavern on Roosevelt Avenue is one of the oldest gay bars in Queens. If you’re looking for a dinner-and-a-show kinda night, some live entertainment and Colombian cuisine at D’antigua can get you moving. Those ready to get to steppin’ won’t want to forget their dancing shoes if they’re headed for a night of salsa at Hairos Night Club. For a real NYC dance club experience, make sure to pencil in a night within the 3,000 square feet of partying at Club Evolution. If dancing into the wee hours of the morning isn’t your way to spend an evening though, you may find sanctuary at a lively, but relaxing jazz performance at Terraza 7.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

  • star star star star star

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

  • star star star star star

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

  • star star star star star

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

  • star star star star star

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
