Auburndale is an upper-middle-class neighborhood in the northern part of the New York City borough of Queens, between Bayside and Murray Hill. The neighborhood is part of Queens Community Board 11.
The most common style of house in Auburndale is the Tudor. The Auburndale Improvement Association, along with other groups, seeks "to preserve the neighborhood’s small-scale, lawns-and-driveways character, which in some respects seems to have more in common with nearby suburban Nassau County than New York."
Along with Tudors, capacious Dutch colonials and Cape Cod houses also abound. Home prices range from $499,000 to roughly $1.5 million, averaging at around $650,000.
New York City Department of Education operates Auburndale's public schools.
Queens Borough Public Library operates the Auburndale Branch.

"The neighborhood is the namesake of Auburndale, Mass., a Boston suburb and the hometown of L. H. Green, who was president of the New England Development and Improvement Company. It started developing the area's farmland in 1901, the same year that Long Island Rail Road service arrived."
