Northeastern Queens:

Chinatown Flushing is a working class neighborhood located in Downtown Flushing. Flushing’s Chinatown is 1 of 3 Chinatowns in Queens and is regarded as the Chinese primary cultural center in all of New York City, because the different regional and provincial groups are more wide ranging then in any other Chinatown.

Pictured is the New World Mall, which has entrances on Main Street & Roosevelt Ave. Taking the place of of the old Caldor store, the New World Mall is the self described largest indoor Asian mall in New York.

This Chinese New Years 2014 is the year of the horse.
