Area Code 516 - Information about New York

Because of the late-evening rush, many people do not have time to explore the many options in New York. Some may only travel by car, but if they had more time they might consider driving into the boroughs of New York. These towns are best explored from the car, and with the driving times lengthening, it may be a better idea to see each borough's neighborhood and city over a longer period of time.

New York

Take the L Train to Manhattan and travel to Greenwich Village, which is located on East 17th Street and Broadway between West End Avenue and Seventh Avenue. It is a great place to sit and view the sights and sounds that characterize this neighborhood. East Meadow is the first borough you will enter upon leaving the L Train station. East Meadow is the suburb where Kenilworth is located and one of the most densely populated places in New York.

Nearby to East Meadow, there is Elmont. This small community is famous for its gated community and also the many houses that line its streets. Its first shops were erected in the early 1800s, and as the neighborhood grew, many of the shops have been moved from the downtown area to the neighborhoods. On the eastern end of the town is an old railroad called the East Gut. It was a railroad line that was used by the New Jersey Railroad to move freight from the northern area of the state.

There are a number of interesting buildings in the town, and many visitors stop here to enjoy the sights and the sounds of this suburb. The Elmont Theatre, which is located just outside of town on 36th Street, is an old movie house that has recently been restored and reopened. There is also the Elmont Tennis Club, which is operated by Elmont Tennis & Country Club, Inc. It offers tennis lessons, social events, and plenty of indoor and outdoor recreation for visitors to enjoy.

Next, take the Elmont Subway into Baldwin. Baldwin is the second borough in New York. The first borough is East Elmhurst, which is located just west of Long Island City. In fact, it is the largest borough in New York City. In Baldwin, the strip malls and subdivisions are in abundance, and the scenery is quite the opposite of East Elmhurst.

In Baldwin, the main strip malls are actually tucked within the Town of Baldwin. When you get off the subway at any of these boroughs, your next stop should be to head over to the Baldwin Avenue Mall. It is a shopping center that caters to residents of Baldwin and the surrounding towns.

Located just north of the Baldwin Avenue Mall is Elmont. In Elmont, the homes are of top-quality, and there are many public parks and playgrounds nearby. The food here is as delicious as the people, and the neighborliness is second to none. Traveling into this borough is a great idea for people who enjoy shopping and are looking for the chance to visit several local shopping centers.

Upon arriving at Elmont, turn left and head to the Brookwood Shopping Center. Here you can find the award-winning Brookwood Country Club and plenty of entertainment to keep the family occupied all day long.
