Exploring Flushing's Chinese Community

May 24, 2017
6pm to 8pm

With Queens Borough Historian, Dr. Jack Eichenbaum

This immigrant destination and commercial center has surpassed its Manhattan antecedent in both population and new investment. Taiwanese rather than Cantonese at its core, downtown Flushing plays host to a variety of immigrant Chinese cultures. Rezoning and greater land availability support unusual real estate developments including office buildings, hotels, residential condos, specialty shops, cultural institutions, and malls. I have been living in the neighborhood for 39 years and witnessed the amazing demographic shift. Dine in more than 200 Asian restaurants. Personal recommendations will be distributed.

We'll convene near the restrooms on the 2nd floor of the New World Mall (straddling the SE Main/Roosevelt comer.) #7 to Main St. Fee: $20 payable at the start of the tour.

Maximum 30 participants. Email me with your interest. jaconet@aol.com
