Touring QueensApril 10th, 2012 | Posted by in Queens Council of Arts
Now that the weather is getting better, the best way to experience Queens is by foot. Whether you want to escape to the solitude of Corona Park or experience the hustle and bustle of Flushing, now is the time to do it. If you want to take advantage of the warm weather and learn about Queens’ history I have an upcoming event in Queens to suggest to you, The World of the #7 Train walking tour.
The World of the #7 Train walking tour is a series of walking tours taking place Saturday, April 28th. This detailed, all day tour is the brain child of professional New York City tour guide Jack Eichenbaum, who considers it his “Signature Tour.” The tour covers many of Queens’ most historic neighborhoods from Long Island City to Woodside and Flushing.
Tour participants learn about the rich history of these areas, famous buildings and landmarks, food hot spots and art centers. The tour covers how Queens has changed over the years with the explosion of art and artists in Long Island City to the real estate boom associated with the expansion of 7 train service. This wonderful event in Queens costs $39 and includes a full day of sightseeing and lunch in Queens’ Chinatown. Preregistration is necessary.
