Bell Boulevard in Oakland Gardens, NY

Oakland Gardens is a neighborhood in the northern part of the New York City borough of Queens. The neighborhood is bounded to the north by 48th Avenue, to the east by Alley Pond Park, to the south by Union Turnpike, and to the west by Cunningham Park.[1] Bayside is to the north, and Queens Village and Bellerose are to the south and southeast, respectively.[2] The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 11.[3]

Fredrick Newbold Lawrence built a mansion in the area in 1847 called "The Oaks", and the neighborhood's name probably derives from that estate.[1]. Many people refer to Oakland Gardens as "Bayside" because of their proximity and similarity to Bayside, Queens.
