Northeastern Queens: Bay Terrace

Bay Terrace is an upperclass sub neighborhood of Bayside. The area was developed around the Bay Terrace Cooperative Apartments built in 1950, then subsequently the Bay Terrace Shopping Center. Bay Terrace overlooks the East River and the approaches to the Throgs Neck Bridge from the Clearview Expressway and Cross Island Parkway.
