In Queens, near the merger of neighborhoods Corona, Rego Park and Flushing, is LeFrak City - a masterplanned community built in the 1960s primarily for middle-class New Yorkers. With twenty 16-story towers, and 15,000 residents in 4,600 units, the residential complex is one of the largest in the city - but for New Yorkers who have never heard of it, the more familiar Stuyvesant Town is of a similar scale and design.

LeFrak City, the namesake development of the LeFrak Organization, is preparing for a new era of middle-class residents with a $70 million revamp, which is bringing substantial infrastructure and amenity upgrades to the mega-development - a testament to LeFrak's commitment to long-term ownership and community development.

Built between 1962 and 1971, the sprawling complex is spread across 40 connected acres of land. So big, it has its own newspaper, as the New York Post recently highlighted. LeFrak City is along the Long Island Expressway and is within walking distance to destinations like the Queens Center Mall, and Flushing Meadows Corona Park which includes the USTA grounds, the Queens Zoo and the New York Hall of Science.

The major renovations at the complex were master-planned by Rosen Johnson Architects, and the grounds and courtyards have been designed by Mathew Nielsen Landscape Architects. Many areas of the property have received updates including athletic courts and fields, the great lawn, building lobbies, and playgrounds.

In 2012, the LeFrak Organization began the $70 million reinvestment of the property, which also included updates to common areas, green initiatives like solar panels, façade repairs, and new parking decks.

The property offers no-fee rentals with up to three bedrooms and current listings include studios starting at $1,485/month, 1-bedrooms at $1,680/month, 2-bedrooms at $2,310/month and 3-bedrooms at $2,700/month. See all the listings here.
Apartments have large floors plans, functional layouts, abundant storage, and many have been upgraded to a modern and stylish design. Updated kitchens have new cabinetry, countertops, and appliances. Rooms have individual climate control, and some units have private terraces. Units that have not been renovated have classic finishes and a fresh coat of paint to feel new.

The amenities at the complex are impressive. There are a half-dozen athletic courts and fields including a basketball court, tennis courts, and a mini golf range. The Great Lawn is the backyard of the community where you can have picnics, sunbathe, and gather. The landscaped grounds have manicured lawns and newly planted trees. There is even a full-service library branch with an extensive collection of books and programming.
