Corona NY Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Corona, NY Homes for Sale

Corona is a multicultural neighborhood in the borough of Queens in New York City. It is bounded by Flushing and Flushing Meadows–Corona Park to the east and was originally called West Flushing. There are different theories on how Corona got its present name. One theory is that the first postmaster who was also a real estate developer petitioned to rename the post office “Corona” to suggest that it was the “crown of Queens County.” Another is that the name was derived from the crown symbol used by the Crown Building Company, said to be the area’s early developer. Italian immigrants who moved into the neighborhood called it by the Italian or Spanish word for “crown” which is “corona”.

Local Area Information

Apart from Italian-Americans, Corona’s diverse population predominantly consisted of African-Americans many of whom were legendary athletes, civil rights leaders, and musicians. Corona is the site of historic African-American and Italian-American communities, the latter sometimes referred to as Corona Heights. Later waves of immigrants were composed largely of Latin Americans and also included Asians, many of whom were Chinese, as well as Germans, Irish, and of other European descent.

Many famous people have called Corona home including, among others, Dizzy Gillespie, Estée Lauder, Madonna, Martin Scorsese and Louis Armstrong. The Louis Armstrong House has been designated a National Historic Landmark and is one of Corona’s attractions. Another point of interest is the Lemon Ice King of Corona, an Italian ice cream parlor that has gained attention after being featured in the opening credits of the TV show King of Queens and has been attracting international tourists ever since.

There are many parks in and around Corona including William F. Moore Park and Flushing Meadows Corona Park, home to the iconic Unisphere, a significant historical landmark. Other points of interest include the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, most notably known for hosting the US Open, the Queens Museum, Queens Theatre, Queens Zoo, and the New York Hall of Science which, like many structures in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, was built for the 1964 World’s Fair.
