Fresh Meadows is a mostly residential neighborhood located in the northeastern section of Queens. The actual name Fresh Meadows dates back to the American Revolution, with the British general, Benedict Arnold, setting up camp with his soldiers in this area. It was called Fresh Meadows due to the abundance of freshwater springs that could be found. Fast forward to present day, Fresh Meadows is now a neighborhood with a thriving Jewish community. The cost of living in Fresh Meadows is twice that of the national average, with younger populations of Asian Americans, Israelis, and Bukharian Jews taking up residence in the area.
