Neighborhood Guide

Flushing

Many people visit Flushing for sports; it’s where you’ll find Citi Field (home of baseball’s Mets) and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (site of late summer’s US Open Tennis Championships). There’s also the gorgeous Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Stroll by the iconic Unisphere—built for the 1964 World’s Fair—and then get some Asian food in the neighborhood proper. Flushing’s large Chinese population surpassed that of Manhattan’s Chinatown years ago, and overall two-thirds of Flushing residents were born outside of the United States. Explore the area’s shops for unusual food items, ancient herbal remedies and rare Japanese comic books.
