On the Queens side of the Queens/Nassau border are informal neighborhoods ...

... while on the Nassau County side of the Queens/Nassau border are villages (municipal corporations) and hamlets (unincorporated areas) in the Town of North Hempstead, on the north, and in the Town of Hempstead, on the south, many of these villages and hamlets are in the service area of a differently named ZIP code postal zone (i.e., the Hamlet of North New Hyde Park, which is mostly in the "New Hyde Park, NY 11040" ZIP Code postal zone, borders Queens County, while the Village of New Hyde Park does not).

For those who may not be aware, today's Queens County is one-quarter its original size, with the eastern three-quarters of Queens County seceding and forming Nassau County on January 1, 1899.

Om January 1, 1898, the western-quarter of Queens County -- the City of Long Island City, the Town of Newtown, the Town of Flushing and the Town of Jamaica, as well as the Rockaway peninsula of the Town of Hempstead -- are annexed by the new New York City. The eastern three-quarters -- the Town of North Hempstead, the Town of Hempstead and the Town of Oyster Bay -- remained part of Queens County, but are not part of New York City. Thus, for one year, part of Queens County is in New York City and part is not in New York City.

Then, on January 1, 1899, the eastern three-quarters of Queens County -- the Town of North Hempstead, the Town of Hempstead and the Town of Oyster Bay -- seceded from and became independent of Queens County and formed Nassau County.

Little Neck and Douglaston are neighborhoods in the New York City Borough of Queens.

Elmont is a hamlet and Valley Stream is a village in the Town of Hempstead, Nassau County; and, Floral Park is a village, partly in the Town of Hempstead and partly in the Town of North Hempstead, Nassau County.

Yes, but they are still border neighborhoods, which is what the OP asked.

Except that on the Nassau County side of the border, the several villages and hamlets that border the New York City Borough of Queens are not neighborhoods per se, but are sub-divided into neighborhoods.

NYS Geographic Glossary and Excellent Long Island Geographic Resource may be of some help to you in understanding the geography of "Lawn Guyland".

Did they forget to put the name? Should it not be yellow? Maybe it's part of Flushing and should be pink, or maybe it's part of College Point and should be blue. In any case, it looks odd.

There's also an unlabeled green area between Jamaica Estates, Fresh Meadow (the final 's' is missing) and Oakland Gardens.

This map comes from the Office of the Borough President of Queens, and, if you have the time, you may want to contact them and see if there is an explanation for the two unlabeled neighborhoods.

I thought the question was what neighborhood is in both Queens & Long Island.

I put Bellerose & Floral Park because they're in both Queens & Nassau County.
