Imagine the Possibilities
Glen Oaks Village is a self-managed cooperative residential housing development located in northeastern Queens, NYC. It was built in 1947 shortly after WWII to help fill the void of affordable housing for returning GI's. Originally a rental housing complex it was converted to a co-op in 1981. Glen Oaks Village is spread out over 110 acres and consists of 2,904 garden style apartments in 134 buildings. It is ideally situated on the border of Queens and Nassau County on one side and the Queens County Farm Museum on the other side. Don't be surprised to see sheep, chickens and other domesticated farm animals in this part of New York City.
Glen Oaks Village offers 8 different styles of apartments ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms that run along curved tree lined streets, many with decks and terraces. There are 1337 indoor garages and many more private outdoor rear parking spaces. There are 4 on-site laundry rooms and many rentable and free storage rooms situated throughout the community. Glen Oaks Village also boasts 2 lighted tennis courts, a 3 wall outdoor racquetball court, 1 bocce court, 6 playgrounds and a community room available for parties and social gatherings.
We are located in the heart of School District 26, which is consistently rated the best in NYC year after year. The two local elementary schools are within walking distance and one offers a special after-school program. If safety is a concern you can be at ease as Glen Oaks Village is located in a low crime area and has private security patrolling the property 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In a recent crime statistic survey, Glen Oaks and neighboring Floral Park were deemed to be one of the safest places to live in New York City.
Glen Oaks Village is ideally situated nearby many of the major highways. For those who prefer public transportation, commuting to Manhattan is a breeze with the Q46 or the QM1 express bus. For those who prefer a quicker commute the LIRR Little Neck Station is just a 1.5 miles away and 35 minutes from Manhattan.
Glen Oaks Village is a self managed co-op which means its employees work for the cooperative corporation, Glen Oaks Village Owners, Inc and not an outside management company. The Board of Directors is comprised of 9 volunteer shareholders (owners are really shareholders who own stock in the co-op corporation) who serve 3-year terms and are elected by the individual apartment owners of Glen Oaks Village.
