Glendale, New York

Glendale, an upper middle class neighborhood, located in western Queens was originally a swampy area known as Fresh Ponds. Now Glendale has become a quiet residential neighborhood in Queens, known especially for their German restaurants. Traditionally Glendale has had a significant number of German residents which is reflected in many of the German businesses in the area. However, over the last decade or two, Glendale has witnessed a westernization in its local businesses. Most residents of Glendale are either of German or Italian descent with a recent influx of Eastern Europeans and Hispanics.
