Compact Chinese joint doling out spicy, homemade wontons in a no-frills setting.
For soup dumpling and dim sum lovers, Flushing has you covered. Known for its bustling Chinese-immigrant population, this neighborhood is a paradise of Asian eateries. The Flushing Town Hall was originally a civic building, but was renovated into a performance venue, where locals enjoy concerts and theater performances. A hop on the 7 train will take you to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the site of two World’s Fairs, the landmarked Unisphere globe, zoo, and where the US Open takes place. Make sure to stop by the New York Hall of Science (which houses real NASA rockets!) and Queens Zoo for a fun day trip. End your day with something sweet, like a delectable egg custard tart from Tai Pan bakery.
