Welcome to Queens Community Board No. 5

We are one of 59 community boards in New York City.  The communities we represent primarily include Ridgewood, Maspeth, Middle Village & Glendale.  Geographically, our boundaries are Maurice Avenue and Calamus Avenue on the north, the Brooklyn/Queens County Line on the south, the CSX Freight Rail Line and Woodhaven Boulevard on the east, and Maurice Avenue into Maspeth Avenue and the Brooklyn/Queens County Line to the west.  Our neighbors include the communities of Woodside, Elmhurst, Rego Park, Forest Hills, and Woodhaven in Queens, and Cypress Hills, Bushwick and Williamsburgh in Brooklyn.  The zip codes we cover are 11378, 11379, 11385 and small portions of 11377 and 11374.

There are 14 community boards in Queens, spanning from Astoria to the Rockaways.  Each Community Board serves as the most local government body for those living in the community district.  In our case, this is Community District 5 in Queens.  Our main arteries include Grand Avenue, Metropolitan Avenue, Myrtle Avenue, Fresh Pond Road, Woodhaven Boulevard, the Long Island Expressway, and the Jackie Robinson Parkway.  Residents and businesses locally have public transit choices including the “M”, “L” and subway lines running along Queens Boulevard.

While the communities we represent are changing, like so many others in the City, many residents and businesses have been here for generations.  This commitment is probably the reason why our neighborhoods have been stable even in the most difficult times, and we are grateful for the community loyalty of so many good people.
