111 Places in Queens That You Must Not Miss

03.04.18, 5:00 pm

The World’s Borough has a new guidebook for locals and experienced travelers – “111 Places in Queens That You Must Not Miss”! Come meet Author Joe DiStefano and Photographer Clay Williams, hosted by their editor Karen Seiger, and enjoy their stories and adventures in finding the places for their book, at the wonderful Queens Museum!

Staggering ethnic diversity, rich cultural history, and a robust arts scene make Queens one of the most exciting destinations in all of New York City. See and taste the world, travel back in time, and experience nature all without leaving the confines of Queens. Home to immigrants from Azerbaijan to Vietnam and everywhere in between, Queens is truly a melting pot of cultures and cuisines. Eat your way through China, Malaysia, Romania, and visit a Tibetan dumpling speakeasy – no passport necessary. Visit the birthplace of religious freedom in America and then tour local Hindu, Thai and Korean temples. Marvel at migratory birds and terrapins and visit the oldest tree in New York City.

Whether you’re a first time visitor or a long-time resident, you’ll find 111 hidden places in Queens. The most majestic of New York City’s boroughs is yours to explore and discover.

Books will be available for purchase at the event, and Joe and Clay will be happy to sign them. Plus tastings from featured businesses:

* Mama’s Special Heroes from Leo’s Latticini of Corona
* Dumplings from Helen You’s Dumpling Galaxy
* Handmade chocolates from Schmidt’s Confectionery
