MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE
DIRECTOR OF QEDC
More than 30 museums and
cultural institutions. More
than 50 neighborhoods.
more than 100 distinct
cuisines. Where to begin?
Queens in your Pocket will
point the way. There is so
much to explore in the world’s
most diverse county. Our parks range
from wooded tracts to beautiful beaches. Historic homes and
museums showcase the past, present, and future of the United
States. The best professional tennis and baseball are played here.
And then there’s what makes us famous: the food! Where else
can you sample sushi, roti, steak frites, bubble tea, quail eggs,
pizza, and many more items on the same street?
This guidebook will help you explore our borough, which the
Lonely Planet travel media company designated as the best
tourism destination in the United States in 2015. Read it and
remember: “It’s in Queens!”
