Kew Gardens: Where to eat, what to do in the relaxed Queens neighborhood

Spend an afternoon in Kew Gardens and you just might leave with a new hobby, heightened appreciation for nature and a taste for German food.

The neighborhood, near a 500-acre NYC park and landmarked cemetery, offers an urban-meets-suburban vibe. Just 45 minutes from Manhattan via subway, it’s a great escape from busy streets and your day-to-day routine. But if you’re not one for long commutes, consider taking the LIRR. It’ll get you there in just 20 minutes.

From what to eat to where to catch a movie, here’s how to spend the day in Kew Gardens.
