Heading south brings us into the hood known as Queensboro Hill. It goes from Boot Memorial Ave to the LIE (I-495) with Ceder Grove Cemetery and Main St between Fresh Meadow La and the Van Wyck Expwy (I-678). This hood is mostly resdiential. Its first settlement goes back to 1645 when the Dutch came and called it Vlissingen. The English decided to anglify the name by calling it Flushing. In 1873, the Cetral RR of LI placed its tracks here, but service ended in 1879. In 1939, it was cut off from south after the LIE was being built. It was only recently that Queensboro Hill, not sure where the name actually came from, got its own identity seperate from Flushing. Despite, it remains a quiet neighborhood that sits off the beaten path, though there are number of stores by the highway. You can get here by taking the Q17, Q20A, Q20B, Q25, Q34, Q44, Q58, Q65, Q74, Q88, X32, and X51 buses. Here is what you will find in Queensboro Hill.
