 Queens Reigns Supreme by Ethan Brown | Queens Reigns Supreme by Ethan Brown
Southeast Queens is home to some of the most sprawling housing projects in all of New York City, most prominently South Jamaica’s Baisley Park Houses and the South Jamaica Houses, nicknamed the “40 Projects” because its cluster of tall brick buildings sits beside Public School 40.
In Hollis, residents could feel like they were part of a neighborhood but could keep their distance whenever they needed to, just like in the suburbs.
If Hollis, with its single-family houses and neat lawns, was something of a lower- middle-class paradise, South Jamaica was a lower-class hell of towering brick public housing projects that seemed to block out the sky, abandoned, burnt-out buildings, and desolate stretches of blocks where everyone could feel as though they were alone in the area.

That’s why the Queens Borough Public Library has seven new construction projects under way, many of them with a grandeur befitting the highest-circulating public library system in the country—a system that began with seven buildings, just over 100 years ago.
The state-of-the-art buildings are a far cry from the first Queens library building, which operated in Flushing in the late 19th Century.
The Central Library in Jamaica, which is the system’s administrative home, was built in 1930, expanded in 1941 and was replaced in 1966.
