Walking Queens 
30 Tours for Discovering the Diverse Communities, Historic Places, and Natural Treasures of New York City's Largest Borough

Queens, the sleeping giant of New York City, is awakening. It's the largest borough geographically, accounting for more than a third of New York City's total area, and a close second in population. Home to more than 2.3 million people who speak at least 150 different languages, Queens is heralded as the most multicultural place on Earth. Tens of millions of visitors arrive in Queens every year, landing at LaGuardia or Kennedy airport. People go there to watch Major League Baseball or the U.S. Open tennis tournament. Perhaps they venture just across the river, to check out a trendy new restaurant, bar, or performance space in Long Island City or Astoria, or ride the train all the way out to the beach on a summer's day.

Now, with Walking Queens by local author Adrienne Onofri, people can get to know the communities of Queens and not just individual places here and there. Each walk tells the story of a neighborhood: how it developed originally and how it's transformed over the years. Readers will be pointed to distinctive architecture, landmark buildings, popular eateries, ethnic enclaves, celebrity residences, art and performance spaces, and natural scenery ranging from woodlands to waterfront to meadows and marshes. There are tours that reveal forgotten moments in Queens history, or position you for a stunning view, or immerse you in all the sights, scents, and sounds of a melting pot. Maps and transportation directions make it easy to find your way. Whether you're looking for an afternoon stroll or a daylong outing, grab this book and start walking Queens!
