We are also the authentic foodie Boro!😋 A lot of sitcoms are also based on the folks from Queens. 😎
Miguelina Mencia
Jamaica is a great community with diversity.
US Marine Corporal
Queens will be a better place without blacks and Hispanics.
Amy Rooplall
My parents actually told me that when they moved in to Ozone park Cyndi Lauper used to live in the end house in my street!! At this time she was famous though. But still cool how an icon lived close to me! :D
Por Aquí Y por allá
How about flushing?
Alex Private
Can’t listen to her continuously butcher the word “borough”. Gives me the goosebumps 🤢
Albert Rosa
Why give shout outs to Harvey Weinstein, Bernie Madoff and Donald Trump? The Putz, the Yutz, and the Shmutz. Smh.
playboymaxim
Fun fact: The Godfather of soul, James Brown, had a house in St. Albans
ROCKY DARASSI
You really should learn how to pronounce words better and if in fact queens is now the largest borough it's due to the fact that NYC KEEPS pushing the borders around cause they afraid BROOKLYN MAY START AN UPRISING
Sergio Vazquez
U ain’t mention nas tho. I’m sorry but shame on you
Michael Lemus
Queens HOME OF THE NEW YORK METS!!!! Shea Stadium!!!! formally known as Citi Field in FLUSHING!!! Should have been #1
R Stavros
She forgot the Queens Jazz Trail. Queens is the home of Jazz. Many Jazz musicians lived here... Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie (both buried in flushing cemetery) and many others.
D.A. Paulino
5 points, hidden Nikola Tesla lab withing Kew agardens, Trump family's first construction, Abandoned military airport, ww2 Uboat sunken off coast of Far Rockaway.ect.ect.
Amr Ameer
I live in lic
Maybe A Unicorn
I see what part of queens you from 🤦🏾‍♀️
Lauren and the City
For everyone talking about her accent, that’s what diversity is people. Many Queens natives have accents because they come from immigrant families and such. Duh!
