Ninth in this series, Queens is the melting pot of today's America. Ranked #1 in the last census as the most diversely populated county in the United States, all regions of the world are represented among Queens residents. Looking at that variety we visit neighborhoods as diverse as Astoria, Flushing and Jamaica. We also highlight Queens fine heritage of garden suburb/new urbanist neighborhoods such as Douglaston, Forest Hills Gardens and Jackson Heights. And we stop off at cultural spots unique to the city including the Noguchi Museum, PS 1, Museum of the Moving Image and the Steinway Piano Factory. Not the ?burbs? of fifty years ago, Queens today represents the heady mixture of people that is today?s New York.
