The Jackson Heights Historic District, built primarily between 1914 and 1939, is the nation’s first and largest planned cooperative and garden apartment community. Brick structures in a mixture of sizes from single-family homes to large apartment buildings exhibit a number of revival styles including Tudor, Italianate, Mediterranean and Georgian Revival as well as French Renaissance and Romanesque.


Most of the original neighborhood was made a National Register Historic District and a New York State Historic Register District. On October 19, 1993, a rectangle stretching roughly from 76th Street to 88th Street and from Roosevelt Avenue almost up to Northern Boulevard was designated as a New York City Historic District by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Unlike the State and National Districts, the local designation comes with aesthetic protections.

Modern day Jackson Heights is a lively and ethnically diverse neighborhood rich in history, music and cuisine. With a growing reputation for celebrating diversity and pride, parades along 37th Avenue are a frequent occurrence throughout the year. 


A true melting pot, Jackson Heights is a fascinating mix of Southeast Asian 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. Thai, Columbian, Peruvian and Mexican cuisines also number among those available in this neighborhood as well as a growing street food scene along Roosevelt Avenue.


Jackson Heights is a 20-minute commute on the 7 train to midtown Manhattan from the 82nd Street station. Alternatively, the E, F, R, or V trains from Roosevelt Avenue is a 15 to 20 minute commute to midtown (E and F are express through Queens). The Q19, Q19B, Q32, Q33, Q47, and Q66 buses serve Jackson Heights.

Scrabble, the beloved board game distributed by Hasbro, was first invented across the street from The Woodstock.


In the early 1930s, Alfred Mosher Butts, an out of work architect, set out to design a board game. He studied existing games and found that games fell into three categories: number games (e.g. dice and bingo); move games (e.g. chess and checkers); and word games (e.g. anagrams). He also noted, "...there is one thing that keeps word games from being as popular as card games: they have no score.” Attempting to combine the thrill of chance and skill, Mr. Butts entwined the elements of anagrams and the classic crossword puzzle into a scoring word game. Mr. Butts was a resident of Jackson Heights at the time. The first iteration of the game that will later be known to millions as Scrabble was invented in the basement of the Community Methodist Church.


As acknowledgement of Mr. Butts’s importance to the invention of the game, there is a street sign at the corner of 35th Avenue and 81st Street in Jackson Heights that is stylized as Scrabble tiles (with their letter values in Scrabble noted as a subscript).


Jackson Heights was a planned development laid out by the Queensboro Corporation beginning in about 1916, and residents came after the arrival of the 7 Line into Jackson Heights in 1917. The community was planned as a place for middle- to upper-middle income workers from Manhattan to raise their families. The Queensboro Corporation coined the name "garden apartment" to convey the concept of apartments surrounded by a green environment. The apartments, built around private parks during this time, contributed to Jackson Heights' being the first garden city community built in the United States.


The Jackson Heights name comes from Jackson Avenue, the former name for Northern Boulevard, a major thoroughfare that bisects the neighborhood. John C. Jackson built the road across what is now Jackson Heights in 1859. The place was not particularly high, but the name "heights" showed that the place was originally meant to be exclusive.
