East Flushing Apartments

Next to downtown Flushing, East Flushing is a middle class “mini-neighborhood” within Greater Flushing that is technically part of Flushing proper.

It is known for its large Chinese community, but isn’t as exclusively Chinese as “the second Chinatown” of NYC. While East Flushing is still 50% Asian, it retains a visual diversity long gone from downtown Flushing. To this day it has a considerable Irish, Greek, Russian, and Italian presence, as well as a large Hispanic population.

East Flushing has a stretch of rowhouses and semi-detached houses on 164th to 166th Streets, and is considered a residential section of Flushing. One of the landmarks is the Hindu Temple Society of North America, the oldest Hindu temple in the US. The northeastern part of Flushing (near Bayside) also has a number of Italian and Greek bakeries, groceries, and restaurants, while many Pakistanis, Afghans, and Bangladeshi markets are concentrated south of Franklin Ave. in a section known as “Little India.” Popular restaurants include Nan Xiang Dumpling House, Joe’s Shanghai, Asian Jewels Seafood, and White Bear, all Chinese establishments shared with downtown Flushing.
