Neighborhood Highlights

This vibrant borough is one of the most ethnically diverse places in the world—visiting can feel like an international adventure. There’s fresh seafood in Long Island City, juicy Greek gyros in Astoria, homemade al dente Italian pasta in Corona and a banquet of Szechuan specialties in Flushing. And the delights extend beyond dining: art lovers can explore the newly expanded Queens Museum, experience MoMA PS1’s contemporary works and social events and walk through Socrates Sculpture Park year-round. Kids can have fun at the City’s premier hands-on science and technology center, the New York Hall of Science, while polar bears and friendly winter animals are out to play at the Queens Zoo. Winter is also a great time to take a spin around the ice-skating rink at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park while enjoying the natural sights around the lake.
