Queens

Neighborhood Highlights

As one of the City’s food destinations, Queens rewards adventurous appetites. You could easily spend an entire week exploring cuisines you hadn’t even realized existed. A few of the better-known suggestions: richly layered moussaka in Astoria, tender Shanghai soup dumplings in Flushing or flaky empanadas in Jackson Heights. Queens is also bursting with parks and green space—perfect for watching autumn leaves change color. Long Island City’s Socrates Sculpture Park is one favorite spot to picnic or just gaze at the Manhattan skyline across the river; it’s also an open-air art gallery. Across town, Flushing Meadows Corona Park has plenty of room for games and art. Within its spacious 897 acres are the Queens Museum, the Queens Theatre, Citi Field (the home of the Mets) and many other institutions.
