Neighborhood: John F. Kennedy International Airport might be the closest landmark to this hotel, but that’s just one part of the neighborhood. Venture a few blocks north and you’re in the vibrant Caribbean and Southeast Asian community of Jamaica; go around the airport toward Far Rockaway and you’ll find pristine beaches and natural wetlands.

Rockaway Brewing Company: For local suds within walking distance of the beach
Time Out tip: One of New York City’s most impressive exhibits isn’t in the Metropolitan Museum of Art or MoMA, but in the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park. The Panorama of the City of New York shrinks the five boroughs down to scale in a a 9,335-square-foot model. Visitors can even adopt an apartment for a mere $100—a steal at today’s real estate prices.
