9780300151336: The Neighborhoods of Queens (Neighborhoods of New York City)

This up-to-date, intimate portrait of the 99 neighborhoods of Queens is a wonderful tribute to the borough’s past history and present diversity. Detailing the history, people, and cultural activities of each neighborhood, the book is generously illustrated with more than 200 photographs, both contemporary and historical, and over 50 new maps that chart the precise neighborhood boundaries.

 

With two airports (La Guardia and JFK), Shea Stadium, and Aqueduct Racetrack, Queens is a destination for millions of travelers and visitors each year. But those who live in the borough’s neighborhoods know that it offers much more: parks, bridges, colleges and universities, museums, shops, restaurants, and other institutions and sites that testify to its more than 350-year history. From Astoria to Woodside, with points in between, Queens, the most diverse county in the country, offers a cornucopia of cultures, sights, tastes, and sounds.

 

With input from residents, historians, demographers, politicians, borough officials, shopkeepers, and many others, The Neighborhoods of Queens captures the unique character of each neighborhood. The book features practical tips (subway and bus routes, libraries, fire departments, hospitals), quirky and unusual neighborhood facts, and information on famous residents. For anyone who lives in Queens, visits its neighborhoods, or remembers it from earlier times, this book is an unsurpassed treasure.

"'Look out, Queens, because your bible is coming. A 265-page book with intricate maps, historic photos and fascinating tidbits about the nation's most diverse county... The Neighborhoods of Queens includes detailed community profiles that detail everything from boundaries and bus routes to ethnic makeup and landmarks... The book is also notable for its wealth of eye-catching photos.' Nicholas Hirshon, New York Daily News 'Copquin sought input from residents, historians, demographers, politicians, borough officials, shopkeepers and many others, and the result is that The Neighborhoods of Queens captures the unique character of each neighborhood... For anyone who lives in Queens, visits its neighborhoods or remembers it from earlier times, this book is an unsurpassed treasure.' Linda J. Wilson, The Queens Gazette"
