About Flushing

Nowadays, the Chinese-immigrant population of Flushing, Queens, surpassed that of Manhattan's Chinatown years ago. Roughly two-thirds of the residents in this bustling Queens neighbourhood are foreign born, the vast majority of them coming from Asia. In Flushing, you can enjoy the most authentic Asian cuisines.

The neighbourhood also happens to be home to some of the City's best attractions, including world-class sports venues, lush gardens and performance spaces.

The neighbourhood is quite lush, too; indeed, it’s home to the borough’s botanical garden and one of NYC’s largest parks.

As early as the 1970s, Flushing began its transition from a predominantly Italian and Jewish community to a Chinese one. The first newcomers were primarily Taiwanese, and eventually, beginning in the 1990s, immigrants from Fujian and then from northern and southwestern provinces arrived.

Then a new infusion of capital, some of it from Taiwan and Hong Kong, returned in the modern era to remake downtown Flushing, erecting skyscraper hotels and shopping centers.

The Chinatown you now see is buttressed by Korean and Indian communities, and now constitutes one of the city’s most active commercial centers, linked to the rest of the city by the Long Island Railroad and the 7 subway line.

The streets are bustling with shoppers seeking out dumpling shops, bakeries, sprawling fish and vegetable stands, beauty shops, apothecaries, and restaurants. And walking down Main Street from the terminus of the 7 train is as close to being in Beijing or Taipei as one is likely to get in New York City.
