A New York Neighborhood


Flushing is a neighborhood in the greatest city on earth, New York City. Officially, Flushing is part of the greater borough of Queens. Although just a neighborhood contained with in a borough, Flushing is still bigger than many cities in America, with an estimated 220,000 people calling it home.

Flushing's history is Dutch, and it was originally a New Netherlands Colony. Eventually though, it was taken over by the British and incorporated into New York. Today, Flushing is home to a very large Chinese community, with one of the largest and most quickly expanding Chinatowns in North America. At the same time, there is also a very large Koreatown in the neighborhood as well.

October and November are the best times to try and find an apartment in Flushing. These months are best because they strike a balance. The summer time has more listings but is competitive, and the wintertime tends to not have enough availability. October and November provide a nice middle ground.

Flushing is a large enough neighborhood that prices can vary widely depending on which part of it you are shopping in. However, expecting to pay about $1500 for a 1 bedroom basic apartment is a good place to start.

Much of the wisdom that applies to the rest of New York City applies to Flushing as well. Foremost amongst the tips you might get is to not be afraid of using an agent. It's true, you might end up paying them some fees. But what they will save you in time, effort, and potential run-ins with unscrupulous landlords is usually well worth the hassle.

The people of Flushing have perfect access to the best public transportation system in the country. The New York City subway line has a dedicated Flushing line that runs from Times Square right to the Flushing-Main St. Station. Once you're on the subway, you easily access anywhere in the city.

Visiting the Flushing Chinatown will give you access to a lot of fun shopping and great dining options. One of the things to not miss in Flushing is Citi Field, where the New York Mets play, and is also home to a Mets museum. For music fans, a visit to the Louis Armstrong House Museum is highly recommended. And of course, if you run out of things to do right in Flushing, you're only a subway ride away from the entertainment options that await you in the rest of NYC.
