About New York

Queens is a wonderful, vibrant place to live and to work. One of New York City's five boroughs, it is a largely residential area and is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world. With over 2 million residents, the borough is a patchwork of dozens of unique neighborhoods, each with its own distinct identity.

Queens can satisfy nearly every taste and hobby. You can choose to see the New York Mets play baseball at Citi Field, or catch a US Open tennis match next door. Foodies love the Greek cuisine of Astoria and the authentic Asian food in Flushing; others admire the inventive art at MoMA PS1 and Socrates Sculpture Park and the stunning flora at the Queens Botanical Garden.
