"A trip through Queens is like a trip across the world. No visitor to our City should leave without visiting this culturally rich and diverse borough."--New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg "With this publication, Ellen Freudenheim has done what I urge everyone to do--Visit Queens, and See the World!" --Helen Marshall, Queens Borough PresidentVom Verlag:
As a destination, the borough of Queens has been overlooked and underrated by New Yorkers for years, and only now is it starting to get the recognition it deserves. With world-class food from every corner of the world, major sporting venues, quirky nightlife, and rich history and cultural institutions to boot, Queens has just about everything a visitor could want. This handy reference explores Queens neighbourhood by neighbourhood, giving the low-down on local character and history, shopping, restaurants, nightlife, parks and playgrounds, museums, and sights of all kinds. Even those familiar with the borough will discover new places they had never known about. This guidebook includes: detailed coverage and maps of neighbourhoods including Astoria, Long Island City, Forest Hills, and Sunnyside; daytrips to interesting but far-flung spots in the borough like Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge; the best restaurants serving every possible type of cuisine; cultural attractions and nightlife spots worth the subway fare from Manhattan; and, contributed pieces from major figures in the community, including the president of Queens College and the director of PSI.
