Welcome to
Downtown Jamaica

A vibrant shopping and cultural center set in southeast Queens, here you'll find three performing arts centers, dozens of landmarked historic gems, Rufus King Park, two colleges, a major transportation hub, and hundreds of independent businesses and blue-chip national stores. The heart of it all? Jamaica Avenue, with over 400 businesses reflecting a kaleidoscope of cultures.

Getting here is easy

Take the EJZ subway trains to the Parsons/Archer station, the LIRR to Jamaica Station, or any of the 10 bus lines running throughout Jamaica Avenue. A dozen well-maintained and safe parking lots are available for those who prefer to drive, including the five lots administered by Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, LAZ Parking’s centrally-located lot, and the Queens Family Court Garage (149-15 Archer Avenue).
