Cititrek and QUEENS

A borough of villages, literally speaking. There are 33 villages that comprise this borough, and each sings its own individuality. Walk through the streets of Jackson Heights and smell the scents of different spices, or take the 7 train to see the Mets and grab a snack in Flushing's Little Asia. Take a nice stroll through the backyard mews in Sunnyside after dining on Spanokopida or enjoy the art in Socrates Sculpture Park or East River views from Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City.
