Ridgewood

Overview

Ridgewood, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

Closer to Brooklyn that most of Queens, Ridgewood experiences waves of the eclectic BK vibrations. Originally served by the Bushwick Post Office in the early 20th century with a Brooklyn zip code, Ridgewood made its official distinction as Queens after riots and looting in Bushwick during the Great Blackout of 1977 devastated the streets and caused this neighborhood to disassociate itself. Established by Dutch settlers and named by new coming Englishman in the 18th century, Ridgewood has since evolved into a hub of Eastern European culture with a pinch of Vietnamese and Hispanic spice for flavor. With exposed brick enlivening row houses throughout the region, the influence of Brooklyn can still be since here. Though the value of real estate is affordable for those looking to move out of increasing rental units in Brooklyn, many of the homes are well-kept and retain much of their early 20th century appeal. Renovations of warehouses into upscale apartments and rental buildings (that include some units with affordable housing) are sure to add value to the already increasing metro zone. Ridgewood is served by many bus routes with connections to the L train on Myrtle Avenue and the M train running through the heart of this area along Myrtle and Wyckoff Avenues. Access to lively entertainment is available, from bars and lounges to restaurants with world class cuisine. Its home to wine shops, food trucks, and supermarkets. Julia’s on Woodward Avenue is a great place to spend time with close friends and enjoy a full beer menu with mouthwatering comfort food right at your feet. The Ridgewood Ale House on Myrtle Avenue is a reasonably priced sports bar for with an insightful view of downtown Manhattan. The staff will entertain you with $5 happy hour specials and food for the ages. There’s also a multitude of public schools with one main high school being Grover Cleveland. Ridgewood is quiet and calm, fit for those starting families. Ridgewood is in the midst of a renaissance that New York’s displaced millennials find appealing and are taking advantage.
