Join us for a 90-minute walking tour of Flushing, Queens and explore the significance of this quintessential Queens neighborhood and celebrate waves of immigrants who have called it home. The tour will include an exploration of historical and contemporary sites that have been significant to local communities over the last century, and will also feature a brief introduction to different ethnic food cultures on Main Street.
The Flushing walking tour will be led by Yuanjing Lin, a CUNY Cultural Corps Intern with the Queens Memory Project. Limited to 15 participants, registration is required. The walking tour will begin outside of Queens Public Library’s Flushing branch at Main Street and Kissena Blvd, near the Flushing Main St stop on the 7 train, and will end on Northern Blvd and Union St.
This will be a guided group walk in a very dense and busy neighborhood. The meeting point is close to both the 7 train station at Flushing-Main Street and the LIRR station at Flushing-Main Street. Both stations have elevators.
RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
