Who doesn’t like to travel and discover new cultures, people and places; well what if I say you can travel to Asia in New York, I know what are you thinking you have heard about Manhattan’s Chinatown. But this time I’m talking about Flushing Main Street. I had talked about this place in my other blogs but it was very briefly so I had decide to make a blog about it.
If you have ever wonder how is too live in Asia, or become fluent in Mandarin or Korean language this is your place to be. Downtown Flushing is known for its Bakeries, easy transportation into Manhattan and for their “Most authentic Asian cousin”
The second most crowded place in NYC after Times Square of course. Walking around Flushing Main Street you might feel you have left the New York. every where you look around in Main Street is not written in English anymore or at least the biggest sings is all about Chinese Mandarin or Korean. I just found that fascinating how a place can change so much, and of course the majority of the population in Flushing is Asian even going to a super market is a totally different adventure, got to say not my favorite but still fun.
I love how Flushing keeps growing with technology and their nice looking scenery, buildings and shops. And most of the food, I would lie if I say I didn’t have some favorites, because every time I’m in Flushing I like to try new things and so far i have never been disappointed. But if you are thinking on going for the first time i will share some of the places you need to try fist.
