Queens of the Boroughs

See more of the largest and most diverse borough in New York City as we explore it! It also happens to be where I am from!

Join my friend Joanna and I as we have a little fun in Astoria, Queens. We head to the park, walk over the Tri-Boro Bridge, show you a few places we like to grab some food, and more.

Bonus clip of Joanna and I roaming around Astoria, Queens.


Joanna and I explore the area of Queens I am from, East Elmhurst and show you some of the great history of it and even do something a little risqué.


We head to the biggest park in Queens, Flushing Meadows Corona Park and take you around exploring it as well as a local bodega.


Joanna and I head back to Flushing Meadows Corona Park to check out the first annual Only in Queens Summer Festival with great food and performances by Ginuwine, Mack Wilds, and Kid ‘n Play.

    Fun videos. I’ve never been to Queens so never heard of Flushing Meadows Corona Park or East Elmhurst. I’m in New York a lot and this will inspire me to explore more.

      It takes many visits to see New York so that is understandable.

    My first apartment in college was in Astoria! The Greek food is amazing and its so easy to explore from Manhattan. You brought back memories of the Ditmars N R station and crazy late nights where my friends and I chowed at the Neptune Diner!

    Brooklyn and Manhattan are the only boroughs I’ve visited. It looks like there’s plenty to discover in Queens.

    I have been in New York a few times already and will be going again in just a couple weeks. I’ve actually never been to Queens though, so maybe I’ll finally give it a try.

      Most people fly into Queens and don’t explore it. Something to give a try.

    I go to NYC every year but I’ve never ventured out of the tourist area but these videos have me wanting to explore more. I’m taking my daughter next year so this might be the perfect time to get out of my comfort zone

      Time to venture out. There is much more to see, do, and eat besides staying in Manhattan.

    I like NYC! Summer festivals are always a good time, especially for the music and different food trucks! I haven’t been back to my High School in a while, but my little sister is a sophomore, so i have more reason to visit!
