The Jamaica center point is around the area of King Manor Museum and 1 mile south of Briarwood.

Everyone knows about New York City, but far too few know about the incredible neighborhood of Jamaica nestled in Queens. In fact, many travelers venture through Jamaica all the time without realizing it, as the community provides a convenient route to John F. Kennedy International Airport. This neighborhood is much more than a transportation center; you'll find a vibrant patchwork of cultures showcasing their influence especially when it comes to the local food. This vibrancy alone is enough to warrant a trip, but you'll find plenty more to explore in Jamaica as well. More from this guide...

While the origin of the name seems obvious, this neighborhood's title actually has little to do with the country of the same name. When Europeans first arrived in the area that would become Jamaica, the indigenous Lenape occupied the area. The Dutch immigrants adapted the Lenape word for beaver and called the settlement Yameco. The Dutch spelled the English "y" sound using a "j." When the British assumed control over the area, the name was modified further into Jamaica when read and pronounced in English.

Modern-day Jamaica has turned into an incredible blend of cultures with people originating from the Caribbean, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, India, and other countries. All these cultures influence the local cuisine and provide an experience that you won't find anywhere else. To experience this beautiful melting pot for yourself, you'll need to find a hotel that can offer you the experience you're looking for. Being located in New York City, you won't find a shortage of hotels, so you'll have no problem enjoying everything this neighborhood has to offer.

When to Visit Jamaica, NY

While in New York City, you'll find plenty of attractions to enjoy no matter what time of year you travel. It comes down to the type of experience you're looking for. New York winters can get fairly cold, which is why the most popular time to travel is in July. While the weather is beautiful, hotel rates tend to be slightly increased during the busy season.

For more affordable lodging, traveling during the winter may be your best bet. December through February are the slowest times for travelers, which pushes hotel prices down significantly. Winter temperatures can get cold with mean temperatures just above freezing. In fact, average lows in January are around 24.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Snow is also a common weather event during the winter months: Expect to deal with a few inches of snow through almost the entire season.

Both spring and fall offer appealing alternatives to the busy and slow seasons in Jamaica. Springtime is still moderately cold, but highs can reach near 80 degrees around May. Jamaica is somewhat warmer in the fall, which is why hotel prices are more expensive during that season compared to the spring. Additionally, less than a 10-degree difference in average temperatures exists between the spring and fall, so you may want to take advantage of springtime prices.

Jamaica, NY in a nutshell

Part of Queens in New York City, Jamaica is a culturally diverse area previously an almost exclusive African American neighborhood but has become a place for many races and cultures to thrive peacefully with each other. Do not confuse this with the nation of the same name as there is no connection whatsoever but only a matter of coincidence that they picked the same name, with the same spelling. Jamaica is a busy place, as with most parts of New York City. Its major thoroughfare, Jamaica Avenue, is the busiest. Still, along this route are plenty of landmarks and attractions to see, making side trips quite easy. For instance, the King Manor Museum which is more than 200 years old can be found along Jamaica Ave. Jamaica has a lively nightlife scene, with plenty of ritzy, cosmopolitan bars that are open well into the early hours of dawn. The place comes alive with party music and lights as people go bar hopping or enjoy hanging out in their favorite bars. Legal nightclub entertainment can also be found in Jamaica, with club DJs raising the party atmosphere several notches higher.
