From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jamaica Hills is a small neighborhood in central Queens in New York City, USA. The neighborhood is surrounded by the Grand Central Parkway (north), Jamaica Estates (east), Jamaica (south), and Briarwood (west). It is centered on the terminal moraine which runs the length of Long Island. Originally populated with people who left neighborhoods under ethnic transition, Jamaica Hills started to become more ethnically diverse after 1964. The population today is mostly east Indians and smaller populations from the Caribbean, Central America, and China. Because of the opening of a Greek Orthodox church in the 1960s, many Greek immigrants also live in the area. Jamaica Hills is patrolled by the NYPD's 107th Precinct.
