NYC - The Official Guide

Dynamic Flushing holds Queens’ Chinatown, its bustling main blocks lined with herbal shops and Asian bakeries and restaurants. The neighborhood is quite lush, too; indeed, it’s home to the borough’s botanical garden and one of NYC’s largest parks.

Get there
Head to central Queens by taking the 7 train to Main Street or, for a ball game, the Mets-Willets Point station. The LIRR also stops here.
Go for
Korean, Chinese or Taiwanese food (and the global menu goes on), World’s Fair remnants in Flushing Meadows and a handful of quirky museums.
Stay for
The chance to see sights from one of NYC’s least-known historical legacies: that of the Quakers who settled in 17th-century Flushing.
Locals know
The look of a dumpling or noodle joint can be inversely proportional to its quality. Seek out the tiny stalls, humble storefronts and street vendors.
