Flushing

The largest in area of the five boroughs of New York City and the second-most densely populated, Queens sits on the western portion of Long Island and is home to about 2.3 million individuals. At 178 square miles in size (69 of those are water), this eclectic borough boasts a variety of living options, from very urban areas to suburban-like neighborhoods lined with trees.

The borough of Queens was established just before the turn of the 20th century and began a great period of growth when the Long Island Railroad was electrified in the area in the early 1900s. Connected to the NYC subway system since 1915, it was a logical place to make a home for those who worked in the city, but didn¿¿¿t want to live there. Before long, Queens was a vibrant and exciting place to live, full of things for families to do. Today, Queens still has a plethora of interesting neighborhoods full of history as well as a very diverse population both culturally and demographically.
