Walking Exploration of Ridgewood, Queens

With an impressive architectural legacy and ever arriving younger culture class, Ridgewood transforms itself into a lively and wonderfully diverse playground. Although the area was originally farmed and settled by the Dutch during the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the secondary wave of English settlers who named it Ridgewood after the area’s green and hilly terrain.
