Visiting

Boulevard Gardens is a large property comprised of uniform buildings. It can sometimes be difficult for visitors to find the addresses of friends and family. There are white plaques on the sides of each building's two entrances that share the letter (A-J), number (1 or 2), and address of each building. Here is a helpful map followed by a list of associated addresses to help locate the correct building. Buzzers for entry are only located on one side of each building (marked below by a bell icon).

Getting here via Mta

The closest subway stop to Boulevard Gardens is the R/M lines at the Northern Blvd. station. From Northern Boulevard, walk north on 54th Street toward 31st Avenue. When you are at the cross streets of 31st Avenue and 54th Street (where CVS is), you will see the main entrance to Boulevard Gardens right in front of you on the north side of the street (and that building is the 'A' building). 

The bus route that goes right along the Boulevard Gardens perimeter is the Q18 which goes from Maspeth to Astoria and stops at both 31st Avenue and 54th Street beside CVS and also at the corner of Hobart Street and 30th Avenue on the northwest corner of the property.
