Queens is world renowned for its diversity, so it should surprise no one that some of the best arts and cultural institutions would go along with that.
Sure, Manhattan has some great museums and Brooklyn concert venues, but if you want a well-rounded education in New York’s arts scene, the place to go is Queens.
Flushing, Jamaica, the Rockaways and even Bayside play host to some of the best institutions for arts and learning, from historical societies to historic houses.
Take in some visual art in Astoria, then head over for some performing arts in Jamaica or Forest Hills, and don’t miss a taste of history in Flushing or Ridgewood. You’ll find out quickly Queens is the World’s Borough and that it has everything to offer for the cultural palate.
