Northwestern Queens:

Chinatown Elmhurst is a working class neighborhood in Elmhurst, Queens. It is dominated by Southeastern Asian businesses and restaurants. China, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand & Vietnam are heavily represented in this area.

Pictured is Lao Bei Fang Dumpling House located on Broadway. Lao Bei Fang is designed like a Chinese cafeteria and serves a variety of Chinese mainstay dishes. The pork bone soup at Lao Bei Fang comes highly recommended.

This past summer, Clement Clark Moore Park on 45th St & Broadway was a hotbed for Chinese Poker “13 Card Hand” cash games.
