Flushing, Queens

Sign board man in Flushing, Queens

Chaos, everywhere.  A different country.  That’s what it feels like to step out of the subway at Roosevelt and Main and into the world of Flushing, Queens.  I have visited countless times before, but yesterday I went with the express purpose of street photography.  Here is a glimpse of my day in Flushing.

I have lived in Queens, going on seven years.  There are many days that I hate the long commute into Manhattan or the general lack of belonging.  But of all the boroughs of New York City, Queens is the one where I can breathe easiest.  I can walk the streets unnoticed, and can step out without the judgement of feeling like I can never live up to the Upper East Side standards.

The people of Flushing have truly made it their own, and I felt privileged to stand by the sidelines and observe.  It is a fascinating place.
