Warnerville, Queens

Warnerville is a small neighborhood in the southeastern corner of the New York City borough of Queens. The area is surrounded on three sides by Jamaica Bay just to the southeast of John F. Kennedy Airport and comprises just three streets, bordered by Rockaway Boulevard on the east.[1][2][3]

Sometimes the neighborhood is incorrectly thought to be neighboring Meadowmere, or Rosedale. The area is served by the 11422 postal code, which also covers the Queens neighborhood of Rosedale and parts of Kennedy Airport.

Beginning in 2007, the city began installing a sanitary sewer system in Warnerville and neighboring Meadowmere because some septic tanks had flooded into Jamaica Bay.
