Little Korea

The Flushing downtown, known also as Little Korea, is the last stop on the end of the Number 7 subway train.If you are Caucasian and you find your self in the neighborhood, you can possibly go into a restaurant where you will hear only Korean and you will be the only non Asian face in there. You can imagine that you are in Korea or another asian country when you are in Flushing.

You will also be able to eat something that you have never eaten before, something that you wouldn't be able to pronounce the name of, but something that tastes pretty darn good. Just ask the waitress. She may not be able to speak any more English that to tell you what to order and she will only order something that you will taste good even to your American taste buds.

Before you reach the end of the line on the subway, which by now is an el (elevated subway), you will pass the stadium where the U.S. Tennis Open is now played. (It used to be played in Forest Hills, Queens.) You will also pass Shea Stadium where the New York Mets play their home games.

    If you attend services at Temple Gates of Prayer (across from the Sikh Temple), you can eat gefilte fish.
