Flushing - NY's biggest Chinatown!

Here are some photos of Flushing Queens, from this past December. While Manhattan Chinatown tends to be more well-known, Flushing is now larger and more prosperous.

First up is a ramshackle but relatively well known foodcourt, called Golden something or other.

Next up, and quite different, is the brand new New World Mall

The view from the 2nd floor of the mall. Pretty much everything you see (including the tall buildings) is Chinese Flushing. It's like a medium-size city in it's own right, larger and more vibrant than the centers of some well-known medium-size American cities.

This set of photos is in no way an encyclopedic tour. There is a lot more to Flushing that this. Just a walk I took around the Flushing station area after getting lunch one day!

Awesome tour! Flushing blew my mind the first time I visited. Its miles from Manhattan and has more street activity then most American downtowns. Such an under-the-radar neighborhood.

Nice to see Flushings Chinatown for instance. I visited the one on Manhattan, I think it is easier for most tourists.

I got lost once and ended up in the area these photos are from, I didn't realize it was in Flushing! I knew it was in an area around Queens, it was crazy I thought I left the US for a second. Queens is awesome every few miles you see a different culture, gotta love it.
