Located at the easternmost corner, Queens is the largest and most diverse New York City borough.
The real estate in the county is as varying as the people who inhabit it. High rise apartment buildings line the busy city streets of the county’s urban western region while sprawling brownstones and single-family homes dominate the more suburban eastern area. It’s common for Queens residents to feel a strong loyalty to their neighborhood versus their city, a testament to the distinct districts that make up the borough.
Foodies flock to Queens for a parade of authentic and delicious international cuisine. The Chinatown in Flushing has become a go-to destination. The region’s Greek food has a legendary reputation. Family-owned restaurants with recipes passed down through generations and specialty markets with ingredients you can’t find anywhere else are fixtures in the area.
Home to both the LaGuardia Airport and the John F. Kennedy International Airport, Queens is a busy and lively district. The borough has a rich history, which infuses every aspect of the entertainments and landmarks it offers. Flushing Meadows Corona Park was once the home of two world’s fairs. Favorite hotspots like the Aqueduct Racetrack and NY Hall of Science draw big crowds every year. The arts scene in Queens is second to none, with roots in the punk rock movement.
A place of interesting contradictions, Queens has a little bit of something for everyone.
