Neighborhood Guide

Jackson Heights

A true melting pot, Jackson Heights is a fascinating mix of Indian, Tibetan, Nepalese and Latin American cultures. Little India is a cluster of shops selling Indian wares and cuisine, while the area’s Tibetan and Nepalese restaurants offer dining experiences available nowhere else west of Kathmandu. Most of the neighborhood is a designated historic district, and during a relaxing stroll along its streets you’ll notice prewar apartment buildings built in French Renaissance, Romanesque and Tudor styles.
