GatewayJFK is where logistics and cargo, hotel, food service, retail, other industries, and a lively community, call home. Our mission is to create a space in New York where the air cargo industry can expand, thrive, and be a good neighbor.

GatewayJFK is home to over 600 businesses and 150 single family households. GatewayJFK is home to 8,000 workers and is a vital part of New York’s 8.6 Billion air cargo sector.

GatewayJFK is dedicated to making the area a clean and safe space to live in, work in, and invest in. We partner with the local community to mitigate the impacts of commercial traffic and improve their quality of life. We partner with local businesses to provide supplemental services, and act as the voice of the Off-Airport community.

Advocacy for Cargo Community

GatewayJFK acts as the voice of the Off-Airport community. From tackling issues with traffic, to helping our members get permits, to working for major changes in airport redevelopment, we are here to make sure that the needs of our businesses and residents are understood by key decision makers.



GatewayJFK has a team of workers collecting trash, trimming grass, and cutting down overgrowth on the sidewalks, curb lawns, and medians throughout our neighborhood. If you see an area you’d like us to clean up please make a report on our Quality of Life form. This celebration will honor members of the community in recognition of their work in both the Civic arena and the Air Cargo Industry.



GatewayJFK provides a security patrol to help keep the neighborhood safe. Our patrol provides extra eyes on the streets to prevent burglaries, illegal dumping, and graffiti. If you’d like to schedule the patrol to visit your home or business please reach out to us.If you're a member of our businesses community please help us by taking this 10 min. survey
