Although many first mention its cramped and lively Chinatown when talking about Flushing, this diverse Queens neighbourhood is comprised of more than delicious hole-in-the-wall restaurants and busy food stalls. Flushing is a neighbourhood that supports a vast array of communities, from quiet Manhattan commuters to families that spend their weekends playing baseball. Flushing may boast a top-notch Chinatown, but plenty of hidden gems line this chummy neighborhood’s more suburban-feeling side streets.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood

A Quiet Queens Neighbourhood and a Bustling Chinatown
Flushing is the biggest China town in all of New York!! We are a foodies paradise! In the morning, be sure to visit one of the many Asian pastry shops in the neighbourhood to try a coconut creme bun or a red bean bun. For lunch or dinner, don't miss the opportunity to try some authentic Korean BBQ."
