Located several subway stops into Queens, Woodside is an affordable, working-class neighborhood that is seeing an increase in popularity as New Yorkers flee more expensive areas. This is a diverse community of whites, Hispanic, and Asians: one stretch of road has earned the moniker Little Manila due to its concentration of Filipino residents.

However, its original population of immigrants from Ireland, Germany, and Italy have still left their mark. On the same road as Little Manila is a cluster of Irish bars and the community still has several Italian restaurants.

There's not much of a nightlife here, although new places are slowly opening up to cater to the influx of young professionals and families. But it's quiet, safe, and its tree-lined streets offer large, single-family houses and some brick apartment buildings.

The 7 subway line can get you into Midtown Manhattan in reasonable time if you work there, but is notorious for undergoing maintenance on the weekends.

Woodside is bordered on the north by Astoria, on the east by Jackson Heights and Elmhurst, on the south by Maspeth, and on the west by Sunnyside and Astoria.
