(c) J. Roleke
Atlas Park opened April 2006 in Glendale, near Middle Village and Forest Hills. With more high-end stores and an outdoor oval (or village square) layout, the mall is ground-breaking for old-school Queens.

Pros

  • Atlas Park has been a hit in the neighborhood for new restaurants: Shiro's of Japan and California Pizza Kitchen.
  • The outdoor layout is refreshing. A pedestrian-friendly green oval separates buildings and stores.
  • The frequent events and farmers market are consistently good.
  • Selection and wide aisles at Rosetta Wines.
Cons
  • No dome to keep out the rain.
  • Many of the retail stores are relatively expensive.
  • Got to pay to park.
