Dynamic Flushing holds Queens’ Chinatown, its bustling main blocks lined with herbal shops and Asian bakeries and restaurants.  The neighborhood is quiet 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.
