This is a list of neighborhoods in Queens, one of five boroughs of New York City.

Unlike neighborhoods in the other four boroughs, some Queens neighborhood names are used as the town name in postal addresses. For example, whereas the town, state construction for all addresses in Manhattan is New York, NY, and all neighborhoods in Brooklyn use Brooklyn,NY, residents of College Point would use the construction College Point, NY instead of Queens, NY.

Note: From the time the ZIP code (zone improvement plan) was introduced in the 1960's, up until 1998, the postal zones of Queens were organized into four "cities" according to the database of the United States Postal Service. This grouping tended to minimize the identity of neighborhoods. At the urging of the citizens of Queens and with the support of Congressman Gary Ackerman they were eliminated. The original zip codes are still used by the USPS for mail delivery purposes. [1] [2] [3]

For historical purposes, the first three digits were 111 for Long Island City, 113 for Flushing, 114 Jamaica, 116 Far Rockaway (112 is Brooklyn, 115 is Western Nassau) USPS 3-Digit Reference
