Queens is one of the most diverse areas in the country; shops, restaurants, food emporia and more celebrate America’s new immigrant cultures ranging from Azerbaijani to Transylvanian. A subway ride to Astoria offers a quick visit to Greece while a few stops away the Indian sub-continent beckons; Trinidad, China, and others are accessible for no more than the price of a MetroCard. As one who grew up in Queens and remembers the more homogenous borough of the 1950s and 1960s, the multiplicity of cultures is truly astonishing.
