Queens is king when it comes to up-and-coming NYC neighborhoods to watch in 2023. The borough took four spots out of StreetEasy’s top 10, and two Queens neighborhoods made the top five — Elmhurst and Woodside. And it’s easy to see why. These nabes are close to major transportation hubs, home to vibrant commercial districts, and have lots of green space. But with any brimming neighborhood comes increased prices. While median asking prices have risen between 2 percent and 15 percent in Queens since last year, there are still plenty of amazing apartments available under $700,000. Here are five great Queens homes for sale at a good price!
