Southeastern Queens: South Ozone Park

South Ozone Park is a mixed working class neighborhood in Southeastern Queens. South Ozone Park was originally developed as a low-cost housing area in 1900. This neighborhood is currently dominated with people from India, Bangladesh & Guyana.

In 1996 the rap group The Lost Boyz shot the video for the popular song, “Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimas & Benz” here.

On April 27, 2012 Lamar Odom brought Kim & Khloe Kardashian to his childhood park for an episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
