Map of down town Flushing civic center

Flushing is one of the Increasingly prosperous neighborhood in Queens & it is very crowded during most of the day with lots of shopping centers, grocery stores, restaurants & banks there.

Subway #7 line goes to Flushing & there is local & express trains running between Flushing & Manhattan. Many buses also runs to here.

We can say Flushing is an historical town of Queens County. Dutch colonists bought land from the Matinecocks in the 1620s & named this place Vlissingen. English took control in 1664, and renamed it Flushing since they cannot pronounced the Dutch name properly. Now it is Queens' largest commercial district.

    Nice tips. I've been to (the former) Shea Stadium in Flushing -- but have never explored the neighborhood. Hopefully, I will have a chance to check it out sometime.

    Wow, you now have 2 pages in the top 5! I only have one, Jiuzhaigou. My Songpan page is also rated number 2. But it is not rated in the top 5 because a location needs 6 rated pages to be in the top 5, Songpan only has 5. you have top 5 with only 20 views
