Rego Park has everything you’d want out of a New York City neighborhood – bustling streets filled with activity, quiet areas to raise a family, and plenty of shopping and food options to keep you busy.
The area is named for the Real Good Construction Company, which had a huge hand in developing the neighborhood’s residential zones in the 1920s. Today, Rego Park is home to many young families and professionals who, over the years, have turned this once-sleepy neighborhood into a happening place.
