Neighborhood Guide

Jamaica

Best known as a transportation center connecting parts of NYC to John F. Kennedy International Airport, this enclave contains a patchwork of cultures, including immigrants from India, the Caribbean, Bangladesh, Nigeria and Sri Lanka. The local cuisine reflects that heritage, with a collection of international groceries and restaurants along Liberty Avenue. The neighborhood also features the 200-year-old King Manor Museum, a National Historic Landmark and the former home of Rufus King, a New York senator and signer of the Constitution.
