Glendale may not be the best known of Queens’ neighborhoods, but if you live in Brooklyn and you haven’t been there, you’re missing out.

It’s home to the famous German restaurant Zum Stammtisch, a serene and relaxing outdoor mall on the site of a former industrial park known as The Shops at Atlas Park, and the large green space that makes up Forest Park.

One of the three biggest parks in Queens, it includes a golf course, carousel and bandshell. Pictured above is the park’s Dry Harbor Playground. Click through to read more about the area.

The area of Ridgewood close to the Brooklyn border is full of plenty of interesting spots to visit, including the Stockholm Street Historic District.
