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.
