Flushing: A Diverse and Beautiful Part of Queens

Flushing is a village in the north-central part of the New York City borough of Queens. Flushing’s diversity is reflected by the numerous ethnic groups that reside there, including people of Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, European, and African American ancestry. Because of this diversity, Flushing now rivals Manhattan’s Chinatown as a center of Chinese culture. It has been called “Chinese Manhattan.” If you love the arts, then Flushing encompasses the one-of-a-kind creative culture of New York City. Other various attractions in Flushing include the Voelker Orth Museum, Bird Sanctuary and Victorian Garden, and the Queens Botanical Garden. There are several public parks as well, which feature amenities such as lakes, trails, and athletic fields. Whether you're a connoisseur of culture or a fan of a little sunshine and green space, Flushing will be able to meet your needs.
