Real Estate Study Lists Douglaston, Little Neck Blocks Among Priciest in Queens

But realtors are skeptical that there are not any streets listed from Douglas Manor.

A new report by a real estate search engine listed one Douglaston block and another in Little Neck among the borough's top 10 most expensive streets.

The only Douglaston site listed in the study, which was conducted by propertyshark.com, was a block bordered by Depew Avenue in the north, Poplar Street in the south, 240th Street in the west and 243rd Street in the east.

A Little Neck block bordered by Brattle Avenue and Leeds Road in the north, Thornhill Avenue in the south, Browvale Lane in the west and 254th Street in the east was also listed in the top 10.

The borough's most expensive block is a beachfront site located between 145th Street and Beach 146th Street in the Rockaways' Belle Harbor/Neponsit.

The second, third and fourth priciest blocks were in Forest Hills. The most expensive home in that community was a property at 98 Ascan Ave. that went for $1.7 million, according to Property Shark.

Other communities on the list included Oakland Gardens and Jamaica Estates. But northeast Queens realtors said they were skeptical that there were not any blocks from Douglas Manor included in the list.

"I'm surprised the Manor does not have any on the list," said Douglas Montgomery, of Douglaston's . "If you look at new construction going on there, you'll see homes going for $2 million to $4.5 million. It's an undiscovered neighborhood that is beautiful. It has a marina and an estuary. And it's private."

Rod O'Connell, of Little Neck's , also said Douglas Manor is the most expensive place in the borough to buy a home.

"There's no question about it," he said. "Shore Road is the most expensive. There was recently a home selling there for $3.5 million."
