You can’t keep a gem hidden forever, especially when that gem offers the world’s best food, art and cultural diversity. So many travelers are discovering what New Yorkers have known for years: Queens is an experience like no other place in the City and, indeed, like no other place on Earth.
When you come to Queens, you can find authentic ethnic cuisine from all around the globe. As Joe DiStefano explained in a video for Lonely Planet, “If you go to eat Thai Food on the Upper West Side, you’re lucky if it is Thai Food… If you go to eat Thai food, or Napali food or Bangladeshi food, you’re eating with people in that community when you’re in Queens. It’s not like Epcot Center.”
You can also see artwork from local and international artists, and gain exposure to dozens of cultures in the process. From Bogart Street to Johnson Avenue, you find art extolling migration, history and science. Artists often call Queens their home, unlike many other cultural hubs in the United States, affording residents and travelers alike the opportunity to visit galleries hosting work of Queens natives.
Queens has an impressive roster of notable musicians that have come from the borough, including Simon and Garfunkel, Run D.M.C., John Williams and the Ramones, to name just a few. Queens has been a breeding ground for incredible art, music and film because it is such an accessible, stimulating place for creative people of all backgrounds.
The borough is also one of the most economically diverse parts of New York City. It is both a transportation hub, hosting both LaGuardia Airport and JFK International Airport, and a sporting mecca, being home to Citi Field, Flushing Meadows Park and Aqueduct Racetrack. In other words, you can fly into Queens, never leave the borough and experience the best of what New York has to offer.

Vehicle accidents in Queens – Queens is a well-traveled district, and there are several dangerous spots for both motorists and pedestrians. The intersection of Linden Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue and the intersection of Queens Boulevard and Long Island Expressway are two of the most dangerous in the city. But crashes can occur in any part of Queens. Our attorneys help clients get compensation for injuries caused by negligent drivers.
