Queens has something for everyone. Whether it’s a high-rise apartment near the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, a house with a big lawn for children to play in, or beachfront property in Rockaway, you can find it all in Queens. Queens is not only home to both of New York City’s international airports, JFK and LaGuardia, it is also home to the New York Mets, Aqueduct Racetrack, Flushing Meadows Park, the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Botanical Garden, the Queens Museum of Art, the Museum of Moving Image, the U.S. Open tennis tournament, and some of the best (and cheapest) restaurants in the world. In addition, just a short subway or bus ride away is the international excitement of Manhattan, with its never-ending array of world class museums, leading-edge theater and the finest shopping and recreational opportunities.
Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world. There are 138 different languages spoken in Queens, the most common being English, Spanish, Chinese, the Indic languages and Korean. Queens also has the most diversified economy of the five boroughs, with jobs spread evenly across health care, the retail trades, manufacturing, construction, transportation, and the film and the television production sectors.
