New York City - Queens (PDF Chapter)
This is the Queens chapter from Lonely Planet’s New York City guidebook.
Of the city’s five boroughs, Queens is top dog in size and runner-up in head count. Any-where else, it would be a major city in its own right. So where to begin?
- feel inspired at the Museum of Modern Art’s cross-river sibling, Moma PS1. This cultural hub displays edgy, world-class artwork, not to mention lectures, performances and an electric summer party series.
- relive your favorite film and TV moments at Astoria’s contemporary tribute to the small and silver screens, the Museum of the Moving Image
- head out to the seaside at Rockaway by subway (or better yet ferry) for surfing, rock-loving waterfront eateries and miles of shimmering beaches
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
