  • For families coming from outside Jackson Heights (Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside, Woodside) Sunday afternoons are much better for finding street parking. There are also 3 parking garages within a few blocks. We recommend a few local cafes/restaurants in the area to hang with other parents. Parva (82nd St/Northern Blvd for excellent coffee and pastries. The Queensboro at 80th St/Northern Blvd, great food & drink. Espresso 77 on 77th St off 35th Ave, wine/coffee bar with food & art. Black Thai (Northern Blvd off 82nd St) solid Thai food, nice ambiance. Gianni’s Pizza on Northern, off 82nd St. low-key slice spot w/back garden. Tons of other places but these are Unity’s faves. 🍕
