Jamaica is a neighborhood in Queens, and Queens is a borough of New York City in the state of New York. Queens is the largest borough geographically of the five boroughs of New York City. You can look at a map, Queens is adjacent to the borough of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Queens is located at the western tip of Long Island, with Nassau County, and Suffolk County to the East. If you want to visit the Hamptons, which is located on the Eastern most part of Long Island its about an hour away. I like to visit Montauk which is on the end of Long Island. I take the train from Jamaica Queens, its about a 3 hour ride. If I want to go from Queens to Manhattan it usually takes under 20 minutes.
