Located in the northeastern part of New York City, Flushing is a neighborhood with a large subway station, several police stations, banks, and many other essential resources within a 5-minute walking distance. Flushing is often referred to as the "Asian Manhattan" -- a perfect area to introduce international Asian students to the cross-cultural essentials within the American lifestyle.
Flushing is about a 35-minute subway ride from Manhattan; the area is also a transit hub with many commuting options - LIRR, NYC Subway, shuttles to other Chinatowns, private car services, shuttles to nearby states, and more.
Flushing is culturally diverse with a high Chinese immigrant population. The significant Asian population may seem to dilute the cultural adjustment experience, but it also helps exchange visitors beat homesickness and adapt to the new environment.
The food scene is so good in Flushing. Not only it has all different options in one spot, many are affordable and taste great -- $25 for a dinner with soup and three dish choices for 2-3 people, $5 for a single dinner box with three dishes and soup, to $2 for few dumplings -- let's check it out.
The neighborhood has a high concentration of shops, banks, doctors' offices, pharmacies, urgent care clinics, with many open 7 days a week. It is also nearby the Flushing Hospital and NYHQ.
Flushing also happens to be home to some of the city's best attractions. Don't wait to check it out -- Citi Field, USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (host of the famous US Open), Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens Museum of Art, New York Hall of Science, Queens Zoo, Queens Botanical Garden, and many more.
